AltO de Cantenac Brown

For many years, the magnificient Grand Cru Classé of Château Cantenac Brown has been accompanied by BriOde Cantenac Brown, a special parcel selection from Cantenac Brown vineyards. But in 2011, our family expands with the addition of AltO de Cantenac Brown, our white wine.

We are fortunate to own a wonderful plot of clay and calcareous soil cool enough to produce a fine white wine. 1.80 hectares are planted to Sauvignon blanc (90%) and Semillon (10%) for a production of only 7,000 to 8,000 bottles a year. We wished to make a wine of nice minerality, beautiful aromas, and a wine for Gastronomical table. Elegant and delicate, AltO pays hommage to the art of music, while at the same time complimenting the entire Cantenac Brown gamut of wines. A perfect addition !
