Founded in 1966, Château de Chantegrive is part of the Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux.
Château de Chantegrive "Caroline" 2016 is a Graves wine that stems from a 15-hectare vineyard, bearing the HVE level 3 certification. The vines are 30 years old on average and are planted on gravel, pebbles, fine sand and clay-limestone soils.
The winter and spring seasons were very rainy from January to June, and led to an extremely dry summer. The harvest was carried out over three weeks in order to perfectly manage the maturity levels of the grapes.
Vinification and ageing
The wine is aged in French oak barrels (50% of which are new) on fine lees, for an average of 9 months with regular stirring of the lees.
Sauvignon Blanc (50%)
This 2016 Château de Chantegrive "Caroline" wine offers utterly complex aromas. The wine is lively, intensely fresh and incredibly fruity.
The 2016 Cuvee Caroline reveals honeyed peaches, spiced pears and fresh lemon slices with a waft of fresh ginger. Medium-bodied, the palate is laden with stone fruit and spicy layers plus a racy backbone and great length.
