Production information

Producer: Chateau Cantelys

Owned by Florence and Daniel Cathiard, both Olympic skiers turned vignerons, Cantelys is a stable mate and near neighbour of the great Smith Haut Lafitte. The vineyards are located on an outcrop of gravel in Rochemorin in the heart of Pessac, a rather enviable spot. The wines are made at Smith Haut Lafitte by the same winemaking team and receive the same TLC in the cellar. Both red and white are text book Graves and are capable of ageing very well in the cellar.

Production note

Grapes picked by hand into small crates and pressed in a pneumatic winepress (to treat the fruit as gently as possible) with cold settling and fermentation in barrel (50% new oak). The wine is aged on its lees in barrel with Batonnage (stirring with a stick) for 10 months.
