Tasting notes

AltO 2022 is distinguished by its pretty pale gold colour. It reveals itself through its delicate and complex nose, with white flowers and white fleshy fruits, supported by citrus notes.
On the palate, Alto is both soft and lively, giving way to an elegant mouthfeel with a mineral structure.

For many years, Château Cantenac Brown, a magnificent Grand Cru Classé, has been accompanied by BriO de Cantenac Brown, which is made from a selection of parcels before vinification. But in 2011, the family is expanding with AltO de Cantenac Brown : our white wine.

We are fortunate to have a terroir fresh enough to produce a great white wine. 1.8 ha planted with 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon. We wanted to make a straightforward, mineral, aromatic wine, a Gastronome’s wine, designed for the pleasures of the table. Elegant and refined, AltO pays tribute to the art of music while complementing the Cantenac Brown range. A perfect match!
