CHATEAU CANTENAC

Frans et Johan Roskam

CHATEAU CANTENACNicole Roskam-Brunot, after studies of right and regional saving at the university in Bordeaux, decided to devote herself entirely to her vineyard and to take the care most attentive with the wine making and the soil by taking care that the ground has all trace elements necessary to its prosperity. Today, Nicole Roskam-Brunot is helped of her sons. Frans deals of the technical part and part of marketing. It also manages in Haut-Médoc the Château La Lauzette Declercq (a Cru Bourgeois) and Johan deals of the marketing and management of Château Cantenac. “It is one period hinge where I carry out the transfer of power with my sons. I do not forget Frederic who even if he does not work on the property, remains an enthusiastic support. Thus everyone feels implied!”
The 15 hectares extend in the prolongation from the slope saint-émilionnais, prevailing the valley of the Dordogne. He is composed of 80% from black Merlot, 15% of Cabernet-franc and 5% of Cabernet-Sauvignon. The gravel-sand and argillaceous ground allows an excellent maturation of the grape. The wine is very elegant, marvelously having a nice bouquet and fruity, a beautiful complexity and length in mouth. Since 2000, they also propose you the vintage “Sélection Madame”, a nice selection of Merlot, a wine charmer and very fruity.
The œnotourism takes an increasingly significant part with traditional visit-tastings or personalized lunches. And the charter “Vignobles and wine storehouses in Bordelais” came to validate the quality of our reception. There is also Les Open doors the first weekend of May, in concert-tasting and May, which is always the occasion to present our vineyard with an event cultural and ludic, within the framework of "Grandes Heures de Saint-Emilion" we organize a concert tasting in our wine storehouses at the end of the year.
