      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
      The 2010 Chateau Cantegril has a pure nose with lifted scents of lemon curd and honey. The palate has a lively entry with racy acidity, and despite its linear finish, it exhibits admirable tension and poise, and seems to blossom with touches of brioche and vanilla with continued aeration. This is a lovely Cantegril.

      A friendly, open-knit style, featuring tasty dried pineapple, white peach and meringue notes framed by a honeysuckle edge on the finish. Pure, with the meringue note lingering. Drink now through 2021.

      Chateau Cantegril, Sauternes, Bordeaux, France
      Cantegril is a 22 hectare single block enclosed vineyard situated on the calcareous plateau of Haut-Barsac. It is located on the site of an old fortified castle named after the same that was built in the Middle Ages. It belonged successively to the Duke of Epernon and the Lords of Cantegril, one of whom married a young lady of the Myrat Family and had the present-day Chateau Myrat built on a part of the Cantegril Estate.

      A civil court order dated December 24, 1862, confirms that Cantegril was separated from Myrat in 1854. It was acquired by the Segur Montagne family and underwent several ownership transfers prior to becoming the property of Charles Rodberg, Belgian Consul in Bordeaux, and then of Emile Raymond. The Lhermite Mansencal family, Denis Dubourdieu's maternal great grandparents acquired Cantegril in 1924.

      Although absent from the 1855 official ranking, the Chateau Cantegril is mentioned among the best Barsac growth in the various publications of 'Bordeaux et ses vins classes par ordre de merite' by Charles Cocks and Edouard Ferret (1874, 1881, 1886, 1893, 1898, 1908, 1922, 1929).

      In the same family since 1924, Cantegril has been successively run by Andre Mansencal until 1978, by his son in law Pierre Dubourdieu till 2000 and currently by Denis Dubourdieu.
