Colour: Dark ruby
Nose: A fine aromatic range of rich, ripe red berry fruits, blackberries, tar and cassis, enhanced by spicy notes of chocolate, cinnamon and pepper.

Grape Varieties: 100% Merlot
Aging: 18 months in 100% French oak barrels (40% new)
Awards: 86pts Decanter
History of Clos Cantenac
Clos Cantenac is a small but seductive 15 acre property with carefully planted vines on an exceptional terroir of deep gravel, sand and clay over limestone situated close to the prehistoric “Megalith de Pierrefi tte.”
This enchanting Saint Emilion vineyard was purchased in January 2007 by Martin Krajewski along with his great friend and wine enthusiast Marcus Le Grice from New Zealand. Clos Cantenac proudly respects both the history and culture of the region to traditionally craft these fine Grand Cru wines
