Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, May 2020

    The 2016 Ch des Antonins is a well-balanced Bordeaux Supèrieur that delivers gorgeous plummy flavours. With almost equal proportions of Merlot and Cabernet and sweet juicy fruits, it is a fine illustration of the 2016 vintage. The tannins are soft and sit comfortably with the freshness that flow throughout. The definition of easy drinking claret.

Producer

Ch Antonin

The Chateau des Antonins is situated in Pondaurat, and is a former 13th century convent used by monks. In 1985 Geoffroy and Martine Roquefeuil took over this remarkable place and its vineyards. The vineyards consists of 24 hectares including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc.

Region

Bordeaux Supérieur

When the Romans first planted a few vines on the limestone outcrops of St Emilion in the early years of the first century, and tasted what was, by all accounts, rather thin, bitter wine, they can hardly have imagined that the region's greatest red wines would become the most sought afterfine wines in the world. From the days in the seventeenth century when the then owners of Ch Haut Brion, the de Pontac family, became the first to export to the UK, selling their wine in their own tavern, the Pontac's Head, red Bordeaux or claret has been the Englishman's favourite. The wines of the 1855 Classification are merely the tip of the iceberg. Bordeaux Supérieur is a widely used appellation in Bordeaux and refers to 10,000ha under vine, predominately of Merlot grape although some white and sweet wines can be found. These wines are entitled to a minimum permitted alcoholic strength of 10.5% which is half a percent higher than Bordeaux AC.
