2020 Château Cantenac Brown En Primeur

Château Cantenac Brown have released their 2020 vintages this morning, " outrageously beautiful wine", according to Galloni, who scores it 94-97 points, calling it "a jewel of a wine...shaping up to be one of the wines of the vintage." 

At just £412 per dozen bottles in bond, it is worth remembering that dear old Cantenac Brown, with its mock-tudor château and Scottish heritage, is a Troisième Cru Classé Margaux, just like Palmer.  With new owner Tristan Le Lous taking over in 2019, this could be the start of a new era.  It is certainly a 'buy' this year.
