Description of Chateau Cantenac Brown 2023

Chateau Cantenac Brown 2023 The Millennium

2023 Overview

The year 2023 was characterized by generally warm weather, with intermittent rain and occasional cold spells. The season began with a hot and slightly humid period, culminating in rains at the end of June. This required the team to be consistently vigilant, focusing on green harvesting and protecting the vineyard against mildew.

Following this, the weather turned drier, punctuated by a few localized thunderstorms. This demanded precise management of each plot, each row, and each vine. Flowering was rapid and thorough across all grape varieties. Although veraison started slowly, the heat of late August and early September ensured the perfect ripeness of the grapes. Two light showers in September perfectly rounded off the ripening of the magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon.
