A red wine from Graves with dense and silky tannins

Chateau de Chantegrive is a red wine produced in the Graves appellation. The vines of this 46-hectare vineyard are 25 years old on average and planted on gravelly slopes (of gravel, pebbles, stones, and sand mixed with silt), and in a clayey-limestone subsoil.

Weather for the 2016 vintage was extreme. Winter and spring (January-June) experienced large amounts of rainfall. Summer was warm and dry, pausing the development of the grapes. Rain in September helped the maturation process continue. Grape harvest took place in ideal weather conditions.

Chateau de Chantegrive 2016 is of a deep red color. The nose is fruity, while the mouth is accentuated by dense and silky tannins. Its controlled acidity is fresh and makes the wine a gourmet treat.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Chantegrive had a slightly odd bouquet with a light geranium scent that I found offputting. The palate is medium-bodied and was much more correct, with firm tannin and crisp acidity, some lovely mulberry and spicebox notes towards the finish. The aromatics corrected themselves with aeration and I ended up appreciating this Graves more than I initially thought.
