CHATEAU CANTELOUP 2014 – MEDOC
Winery : FABRE Family
FRANCE – 33340 BLAIGNAN
This estate is in a single unit which stretches over a south west facing knoll, on the north of Saint Estèphe. The proximity of the Gironde River gives a temperate climate averting the spring frosts.
45 % Cabernet Sauvignon 55 % Merlot
On the 55 ha (137 acres), 45 (112 acres) are planted with quality vine varietals, producing 300 000 bottles per year.
The grapes are picked fairly late, de-stalked, sorted, lightly crushed and the fermented in stainless steel vats with controlled temperature. They remain in vats for 18 to 21 days, to obtain the optimum from the multiple elements in the wine extracted from the skins. The wine is then put into oak casks in an old semi-underground cellar where it is matured for 18 months before being bottled.
Alcohol: 13°35 – Total Acidity : 3,06 g/l

Color : Deep and pure garnet color.
Aromas : Pretty fine, good presence, very fruity with a hint of spices.

This wine can be preserved more than ten years, depending on the vintage, but be appreciated it in its third year. Modern wine-making techniques and traditional aging produce a wine full of distinction and character.
