This small artisanal estate sold most of its vineryards to Mouton-Rothschild about 20 years ago. What remains is about a single hectare of prime Pauillac terroir, near Mouton and just across the street from Pontet Canet, which is farmed sustainably and hand-harvested by vigneron Yannick Mirande. The resulting wine is one of undoubtable cru classé quality, and a reminder of how rivetingly terroir-expressive Bordeaux can be.

What Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Chateau Chantecler AOC Pauillac: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot from 45 year old vines grown on one hectare in the gravelly hillsides of Pauillac. The two types of grapes are harvested by hand and vinified separately before blending. Monsieur Mirande harvests in a single day or perhaps two, waiting for the Cabernet to ripen before picking. The Merlot, maturing earlier, is thus left on the vine to achieve a level of “surmaturité” which adds to Chantecler’s unique and compelling character. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in barrel. Elevage takes place in a mix of new (60%) and one-year-old (40%) French barriques over the course of 16 to 18 months before being bottled unfiltered. Approximately 3500 bottles are produced annually, with approximately one-third of the production now dedicated to the US market.
