2016 is a fantastic, sublime and at times entrancing vintage” Neal Martin

“The best Bordeaux vintage I will probably ever taste" Jancis Robinson MW

Tasting notes
Deep ruby-red in colour, this wine has an inviting bouquet of red plum, black cherry and blackcurrant, with hints of spice. The palate is concentrated and supple, with smooth tannins and layers of bright red fruit.

Vintage review
The 2016 vintage saw almost perfect conditions in Bordeaux, with hot summer days and cool nights, allowing the fruit to ripen evenly while maintaining acidity. These conditions carried through into autumn, giving the winery the optimal choice of harvest times for each parcel. Picking began on 21st September, with the last fruit harvested a month later on 20th October. 

Vineyard
Château des Antonins is located on the left bank of the Garonne, south of Graves. The red varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc are planted on clay gravel soils, producing wines with powerful and pure fruit concentration. All of the vineyards are managed sustainably and with the use of cover crops to avoid erosion and aerate the soils.
