CHÂTEAU HAUT CANTELOUP

Running Château Haut Canteloup is a family affair, and so is cultivating the vines. My brother and I are the seventh generations of winegrowers in the Bordenave family. The history of Château Haut Canteloup itself started in the 1970s when my grandparents took up direct sales. My parents then took over the vineyard and devoted a great deal of energy to developing and reorganizing it. I joined the family business in 2003, taking it into the future: the estate now owns 51 hectares, managed with a constant focus on quality, and ensuring that environmental concerns are respected.

Tasting comments :

Deep in colour, with a straightforward nose marked by toasted aromas. On the palate the attack is frank, leading into smooth, velvety tannins. It offers very ripe fruit, superbly generous and succulent. It is perfectly harmonious and exquisitely delicate. This is an indisputably accomplished wine that can be kept for a while in the cellar if wished.
