"Lovely plush plum and blackberry fruit is carried by a well-integrated cocoa note before giving way to ganache and black tea accents on the velvety finish. Nicely done. Drink now through 2020. 816 cases made. -JM" (WS)

Winery Notes:
A jewel located on top of the highest hill in Margaux, Château Chantelune is a unique property. Its previous owner, Mr. Soubrane was a carpenter who believed in felling his trees by moonlight, claiming this gave the best quality wood. His practice gave the property its name, meaning “sing to the moon.” He sold his land to José Sanfins, director at third growth property, Château Cantenac Brown. Forty year old vines thrive in the poor gravel-sand soils. The vines dig deep for water and nutrients making them strong and competitive. Production is limited to just 400 cases. The small size of the vineyards allow Jose Sanfins to produce small quantities of exceptional fruit, and so the best quality wine.
