Marks and reviews
Created in 1966, Château de Chantegrive is a member of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux. This Graves family estate is run in a sustainable manner with passion and precision to produce wines that are unmissable in the Bordeaux region.
Château de Chantegrive 2022 is a Graves wine from a 41-hectare vineyard in the heart of Graves. The vines are about twenty years old and are planted on a terroir of gravel, pebbles and fine sand on clay-limestone soil. The property is certified High Environmental Value 3.
The mild and dry winter conditions advanced an early budburst, counterbalanced by episodes of spring frosts at the beginning of April which had a slight impact on the yield. A quality flowering preceded an even veraison as well as a rapid ripening of the grapes before a summer with intense weather conditions that augured a great vintage!
Winemaking and ageing
Cold pre-fermentation maceration for 7 to 10 days. Alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled vats. Post-fermentation maceration for 7 days. Aged for 12 months exclusively in barrels (50% new).
Cabernet Sauvignon (35%)
The wine is a shining, intense ruby colour.
The nose delights with its concentration and its fruity and spicy fragrances.
Ample and well-structured, the palate releases a fruity aromatic framework that combines harmoniously with refined tannins that draw out to a persistent finish.
