Vignobles Chatelier

Chateau Cantelaudette was built in 1870 by Jean Julien Chatelier. Located in the heart of Bordeaux's vineyards they produce AOC wines in the appellations of Graves de Vayres and Bordeaux Superieur.
Jean-Michel inherited the Chateau Cantelaudettte in 1984. The house and vines had been abandoned and there was no winery. His wife fell in love with it! So they rolled up their sleeves and gradually refurbished the house, replanted the vineyard in accordance with expert recommendations and built an operational winery to produce their first wine under the Cantelaudette label.
