CHÂTEAU HAUT CANTELOUP

Running Château Haut Canteloup is a family affair, and so is cultivating the vines! My brother, Vincent, and I are the seventh generation of Bordenave winegrowers to work on these lands. The history of Château Haut Canteloup itself started in the 1970s when my grandparents took up direct sales. Then, my parents, Catherine and Sylvain, took over the vineyard and devoted a great deal of energy to developing and reorganizing it. I joined the family business in 2003, and I am proud to participate to its durability. With my parents and brother, we manage the vineyard with constant focus on quality, and ensuring that environmental concerns are respected.

Deep in colour, with a straightforward nose marked by toasted aromas. On the palate the attack is frank, leading to smooth, velvety tannins. It offers very ripe fruit, generous and juicy. It is perfectly harmonious and delicate. This is an accomplished wine that can be kept in the cellar.
