Brand's Heritage

Château Gantonnet dates from the 19th century. It is situated in Sainte Radegonde, a small village with its origins in the Middle Ages. It is located in the Entre-deux-Mers region, 20 km from Saint-Emilion and 60 km from Bordeaux, and sits close to the Dordogne river. The estate of 83 hectares is overlooking the village where it enjoys excellent exposure to the sun. The Richard family acquired the estate in 1962. They invested heavily with new and modern vatting room which offers a larger capacity, as well as temperature controlled equipment in order to produce aromatic and fruity wines.

Alongside its treasury of vines planted on a plateau of very fine sandy-clay soils (commonly known as “boulbènes”), Château Gantonnet vines are spread in 70 hectares producing red wine and 13 hectares producing white. The Château has ideal orientation allows for good crop health and conditions for ripening. Simple Guyot pruning is practiced with 3000 vines per hectare for the old vines (age 35-40 years), and 4000 vines per hectares for the recent plantations.

Chateau Gantonnet Bordeaux Rouge 2014

This is a ripe Bordeaux that sings with fragrant aromas of plum, spice, and dark red fruits. It is well-structured with rich Christmas cake notes and juicy firm tannins. The wine is un-oaked but is aged for one year in stainless steel vats, making it easy to drink and enjoyable.

This red wine goes great with light charcuterie and grilled meats. It is crispy and greedy and offers generous fruity flavors. It is best to be enjoyed immediately.

The Chateau Gantonnet Bordeaux Rouge 2014 is a blend of Merlot (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%).
