2012 Cantenac Brown, Margaux

SKU #1218098 92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A solid effort, this is a wine with great fruit and firm structure to support it. Ripe and full in the mouth, it’s a firm and complex wine with a delicious juicy aftertaste. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2013)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This red offers beguiling aromas of bergamot, roasted sandalwood and black tea, before giving way to a well-endowed core of plum, blackberry and raspberry reduction notes. The structure is remarkably fine-grained, showing seamless integration through the long finish. A really great showing. *Highly Recommended* (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2015)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very intense for the vintage in the Médoc with blueberry, mineral and blackcurrant character. Full and chewy. Needs two or three years to soften but already there. Inner quote mark (2/2015)

88-91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright medium ruby. Inviting aromas of blueberry, blackcurrant, dark plum and coffee, along with a strong mineral quality. The palate delivers excellent cut and precision, showing a hint of wildness to the dark berry and mineral flavors. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and refreshing acid lift, on a very pure blackcurrant note. Cantenac-Brown is riding high: starting with the 2008 vintage, I find all the wines made here to have been of outstanding quality. (ID) Inner quote mark (5/2013)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A rather firmly structured, masculine style of wine in 2012, with a dense, opaque ruby/purple color. The wine reveals a certain angularity, with hard tannin, but medium body and excellent purity. This is certainly a very good 2012 that should age nicely for 12-15 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

One of the stars of 2012 vintage. Huge scores from everyone-I gave it 93. Has a firm structure but underlying sweetness of the vintage. A must for the cellar.
Drink from 2017 to 2027
