An opulent and aromatic Graves white wine

The estate

Founded in 1966, Chateau de Chantegrive is part of the Union of Grands Crus of Bordeaux. This forward-thinking family property in Graves is managed with passion and precision, producing beautiful wines representative of the Bordeaux region. The Caroline cuvée 2019 is the white wine of Chateau de Chantegrive.

The vineyard

The vines dedicated to the production of the Chateau de Chantegrive "Caroline" bottling represent 15 hectares of vineyard planted in gravel, rolled pebbles and fine sand on clay-limestone soils.

The vintage

The hot and dry summer conditions allowed the vines to develop and the grapes to ripen fully in time for the harvest.

Vinification and aging

A cold maceration on the skins for 12 hours was followed by pneumatic pressing with nitrogen gas and a rigorous selection of the juices. Static cold settling took place for 24 hours, followed by a storing of the juices for 15 days. Fermentation was carried out in barrels at temperatures between 18 ° and 20 ° C. The wines were aged for 9 months in 50% new oak barrels, with a regular stirring of the lees.

The blend

The Chateau de Chantegrive "Caroline" 2020 was made from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc (55%), Semillon (40%) and Sauvignon Gris (5%).

The tasting

The Chateau de Chantegrive "Caroline" 2020 is a Graves white wine that, as a wine future, seduces with its complexity and elegance. While the nose reveals aromas of vanilla and white flowers, the palate blends aromas of passion fruit, white peach and grapefruit. The characteristic tension and freshness of this cuvee signal an important aging potential.
