Chateau Gantonnet Bordeaux Rouge 2021


Love the fruit weight of this. Darkness in a purple glove. Cassis, mulberry, spice and woody herbs that meld together to give an overall picture that paints a thousand words…I stole that line…great value though and genuinely Bordeaux in terms of fruit & structure.

More Information

Château Gantonnet dates from the 19th century. It is situated in Sainte Radegonde, a small village with its origins in the Middle Ages and within the Entre-deux-Mers region. The château is close to the Dordogne river, overlooking the village where it enjoys excellent exposure to the sun. Wines produced in the Entre-deux-Mers appellation have an excellent reputation for value for money. But Gantonnet offers more than just value; their wines are well-defined and stylish. They crop much lower than permitted and they have older vines than those around them, aiming for quality not vigour. Bordeaux Rouge: Merlot 70%, Cabernet Franc 30%. A three week maceration followed by running off and pressing. One year in large oak barriques followed by blending before bottling. Aromas of black fruit. Well-structured with rich Christmas cake notes and juicy firm tannins.
