The freshness and aromatic richness of a red wine from Graves

The estate

Founded in 1966, Château 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 vineyard

The 160 plots of the Chantegrive vineyard extend over 36 hectares in the heart of the Graves. The vines, around twenty years old on average, are planted in a soil of gravel, round pebbles and fine sand on clay-limestone soil. The vineyard is managed with great precision, according to the principles of sustainable viticulture.

The vintage

The climatic conditions of this 2020 vintage favoured the rapid development of the vines and the optimal maturation of the grapes. The early harvest yielded perfectly ripe Merlot and concentrated Cabernet.

Vinification and ageing

Cold pre-fermentation maceration for 7 to 10 days. Alcoholic fermentation in temperature-controlled vats. 7 days of post-fermentation maceration. Ageing in barrels (50% new oak) for 12 months.

The blend

The Château de Chantegrive 2020 was made from a blend of Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (30%).

The tasting

The Château de Chantegrive 2020 reflects the characteristics of a sunny vintage, through its richness, smoothness and aromatic palette. A nice balance between tension and freshness guarantees great ageing potential. Deep red in colour, this 2020 vintage seduces with its balance, delicate tannins and aromas of blackcurrant, blackberry cream and spices.
