Château Canteloup Lestage

When my grandmother settled in Fours in 1937, the vineyard covered 2.8 hectares. We’ve come a long way since then! My parents took over from her in 1965, making the most of the rich clay and limestone soil and continuing to expand the vineyard until it covered 15 hectares in 1980. I naturally inherited this passion for the terroir. Our vineyard now covers 30 hectares. My two brothers, Patrice and Cédric, have joined me in continuing to honour the memory of our grandmother with a round, fruity and generous wine crafted mainly from Merlot.

The cellar is in a locality called Lestage and some of the vines are situated in a locality by the name of Canteloup.

Tasting comments :

The colour is deep and intense. The nose is powerful with notes of blackberries. The attack in the mouth is impressive. A strong character comes through on the palette, a subtle blend of generous, very ripe summer berries and well-integrated wood with notes of caramel and vanilla. The whole is a frank success, with a very pleasurable and persistent finish.
