Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby color, seductive and complex bouquet, with notes of toast and dark fruit walls. On the palate it is bold and expressive, supported by silky tannins.

Pairs well with red meats, game birds, poultry, and mildly strong cheeses.

About Chateau de Chantegrive:

In 1966 Henri and Françoise Lévêque acquired a few plots of vines in the commune of Podensac. After 40 years patiently adding more plots, Château de Chantegrive is today one of the largest and most prestigious estates in the Graves appellation with 240 acres of vines. It is a member of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux.

A new generation has now arrived and with its energy and committed involvement within the winegrowing world, has injected renewed impetus into the estate.
