Winemaker Notes

Chateau Hanteillan is classic cru bourgeois, with good color, and a complex nose typical of the Haut-Medoc: meaty, ripe black fruit, a smoky, cedarwood character and a refreshing hint of green pepper. On the palate, it is well-structured, with a good balance of tannins, crisp acidity and ripe fruit. The wine is very well-made, and this shows through in the silky texture and integrated oak complexity.

Professional Ratings

    The winery really has come back to its former glory with this vintage. Full body, beautiful fruit with a spicy character. Could be cru classé character.
  • 91
    The 2014 Hanteillan offers attractive blackberry, wild hedgerow and violets scents on the nose -- well defined and demonstrating commendable precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, crisp acidity and impressive structure with a finish that is worthy of a classified growth. Wines like this do great credit to the Cru Bourgeois and to Bordeaux. Excellent. Tasted September 2016.

Chateau D’Hanteillan is a historic Haut-Médoc estate, mentioned as far back as the 12th century in the papal bull of Pope Alexander III as belonging the Abbey of Vertheuil.

The estate was later owned by a number of bourgeois families before being bought in 1972 by Mathieu-Blasco's family, entrepreneurs from the Limousin with a background in breeding and industry and a passion for fine wines.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.

While it claims the same basic landscape as the Medoc—only every so slightly elevated above river level—the Haut Medoc is home to all of the magnificent chateaux of the Left Bank of Bordeaux, creating no lack of beautiful sites to see.

These chateaux, residing over the classed-growth cru in the villages of Margaux, Moulis, Listrac, St-Julien, Pauillac and St. Estephe are within the Haut Medoc appellation. Though within the confines of these villages, any classed-growth chateaux will most certainly claim village or cru status on their wine labels.

Interestingly, some classed-growth cru of the Haut Medoc fall outside of these more famous villages and can certainly be a source of some of the best values in Bordeaux. Deep in color, and concentrated in ripe fruit and tannins, these wines (typically Cabernet Sauvignon-based) often prove the same aging potential of the village classed-growths. Among these, the highest ranked chateaux are Chateau La Lagune and Chateau Cantemerle.
