The Story

At Chantegrive the quest for quality revolves around a few simple ideas: firstly, great respect for the soil in order to maintain the right soil/plant balance, and secondly, a perfect mastery of the production in order to realize the full potential of the terroir. 

The soil : grassing over the soil is essential in order to encourage a good level of microbial activity and also to improve soil structure. The nutritional elements incorporated into the soil are simply to replenish the elements extracted by the vines. Complementary soil analyses detect any imbalance in soil make-up and allow any necessary rectifications to be made. Computerised plot-by-plot management of the 160 vineyard plots results in extremely precise treatment programmes. 

GRAPES 50% Merlot & 50% Cabernet Sauvignon
CULTIVATION Reasoned cultivation, grass-planted rows, sucker removal & cluster thinning VINIFICATION Cold pre-fermentary maceration followed by fermentation in small, temperature -controlled vats for 3 to 4 weeks. Barrel-aged for 12 months in 50% new oak. 

TASTING Beautiful ruby colour, seductive and complex on the nose with hints of toasted bread and ripe blackberry. On the palate the attack is direct and generous, underpinned by silky tannins. 

Can be enjoyed with red meats, game birds, poultry and mild cheeses 


Vintage 2020

In Bordeaux, the heat led to early flowering. Additionally, this led to an early harvest after a very hot summer. As a starting point, there is great maturity in the grapes, and we can expect a more opulent vintage than in recent years.

This year's summer was the hottest since 1959, but the rain fell at just the right time during the growing season. The harvest took place two weeks before the norm and will produce grapes with high alcohol potential and the lowest acidity since the 2003 vintage. As they say in Bordeaux: “It was a good and extreme growing season which , hopefully, also produces great wines.”

Dark purple colour with violet hue and almost black core. Aromatic nose with ripe mulberries, elderberries and blackberries, aromatic herbs and hints of raw meat in the background. On the palate well structured with ripe yet firm tannins, fine fruit and discreet spiciness, well balanced with very good length.
