About the Wine
Vieux Chantecaille is located in Saint Emilion, less than 100m away from the recognized Château Le Bon Pasteur, and just over 1 mile from world-renowned Château Cheval Blanc. If you know how well regarded those estates are and the prices those wineries charge, you have an idea of the ideal terroir that Chantecaille enjoys and will be enticed by our price.
Vieux Chantecaille is the property of the famous Bordeaux family, Moze Berthon, the same owners as Chateau Maillet.
This long-historied Bordeaux family has been producing wine since 1820, and today, the family estate is being led by the 7th generation, Patrick Moze-Berthon, and his son. This family-owned estate has vineyards located in some of the best areas of Pomerol and Saint Emilion.
In 2009, the Moze-Berthon family decided to incorporate Hubert de Bouard of Chateau Angelus as their wine consultant. Heled with the complete renovating of the cellar.
It's not easy to find this level of quality from a Saint Emilion, -from a vineyard that's located 4 minutes away from one of the best Châteaux in the world, (Cheval Blanc)- at this amazing value.
