Chateau Cantin
Grand Cru 2012

Chateau Cantin is undoubtedly the Tenor, the soloist that receives all the attention and applause for this Saint-Emilion Grand Cru

Tasting notes, This Château Cantin 2012 seduces us with its intense and brilliant garnet red, colour associated with shades of fuchsia. After aeration, the nose is powerful and complex with both fruity and spicy notes and hints of cherry and licorice. On the palate the attack is full and well balanced with exquisite notes of blackberry and chocolate.
The Chateau was then sold as a national asset to a neighbour, the Baron de Mauvezin, and remained in this family for approximately 100 years. Alphonse Bisch, a Parisian wine merchant, acquired it in 1890. The vineyard’s 33 hectares express their potential on a asteriated limestone plateau combined with Castillon clay, a terroir that enjoys excellent exposure to sunshine. The estate is divided into 26 parcels, for 38 hectares in all. In 2007, Les Grands Chais de France became the care-taker of Château Cantin’s farmer of title and today embarked on a journey to revive the prestigious past of the property. From 2009, Michel Rolland has been the consulting oenologist of the estate.
