This building, one of the most unusual in the Médoc, is surrounded by a remarkable English-style grounds. John-Lewis Brown, a famous animal painter and lover of fine wine, organised sumptuous receptions at Château Cantenac- Brown until 1843, when the estate was sold to a banker, Mr. Gromard.
The quality of the wine was acknowledged in the 1855 classification, when Château Cantenac-Brown was included among the third growths.
One hundred fifty years later, the Simon Halabi family has given a new impetus to this estate with a British atmosphere, which they are determined to raise to the very highest level.
