Critical Acclaim

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
This is a complex wine, rich in both tannins and dense fruit. It is concentrated, with juicy berry flavors and balanced acidity to go with the solid structure. Drink from 2022.
JS 90
James Suckling

A firm and silky red with dark-berry, mineral and floral character. Medium body. Shows potential.

Chateau Saint-Antoine, France

Initially, the estate was a polyculture farm: sheep, cows, flax ... The first buildings were then barns for animals and the conservation of various annual crops. It was in 1830 that the owners, the Girard family, built the mansion, now the current emblem of Chateau Saint Antoine.

 

The vine appeared to Saint Antoine only at the beginning of the XXth century, planted by Mr. Cassat descendant of the Girard.The barns then gave way to a winery equipped with concrete tanks, which is a small originality the reinforced concrete making at the time its first steps. Thus began the wine history of the castle, with the exclusive production of white wine more or less soft like the entire region, the Entre-Deux-Mers.


 

In 1953, the viticultural union of Entre-Deux-Mers asked the INAO, and obtained a decree of Control instituting on the one hand a type of wine which from now on had to be dry with a maximum of 4 grams of residual sugar per liter, and secondly production conditions with quality control by analysis and tasting. The dry white wine of Chateau Saint Antoine then saw its first tastings in order to obtain the appellation "Entre-deux-mers". Mr. Etienne Aubert, grandson of Mr. Cassat, known at the same time the appearance of red wine in the region, white wine after his golden age beginning to regress in consumption, competing with other drinks including aperitif.

 

In 1970, his sons Daniel and Jean-Claude Aubert took over the exploitation and started the conversion of the castle. The vineyard originally made from white grapes is gradually replaced by red grape varieties. The concrete tanks are at the same time destroyed in favor of stainless steel tanks. In the 80s, they set up, for the first time at the castle, thermoregulation, still young technology at that time. Then during the 90's they continue to improve the exploitation.

Today their children Vanessa, Héloïse and Yohann join them and perpetuate the family history of the castle, centuries old.

Red Wine

In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
