Château Cantenac Brown 2012

Afterward, it is always easy to explain qualities of a vintage: At first, the 2012 vintage was to be difficult: whether our oceanic climate would have been forgotten in the last few years, we've been definitely reminded of our location, which is indeed rather good to produce great quality wines, but sometimes also quite humid. The vineyard had seldom needed such an amount of work, and all along the season, we kept going all through the vineyard. On the first 2 weeks of July, to compete the lack of sun, over 140 people came to “écharder” 100% of the vineyard. End of August, as we wanted to definitely homogenize the maturity, it’s been decided to “clean” clusters from each single still green and pink berry, in order to only keep the best. Finally, thanks to such a precise work and naturally low yields, maturity was reached only 1 week later than usual.
