Château Cantinot is at the heart of the Blaye appellation, Côtes de Bordeaux with 27 hectares of vines. The soil is composed of sand, gravel, clay and limestone. Part of the vines are planted on the famous "blue clays" which represent a real geological jewel! The Merlot, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Cabernet-Franc grapes, which are on average 25 years old, express themselves wonderfully. They are planted at 4500 vines per hectare, which is relatively reasonable and gives the wine its quality.
Yann Bouscasse is a man of the sea who decides with his wife to set foot on land to produce great Blaye and Côtes de Bordeaux. His wife, Florence Bouscasse is the granddaughter of Pierre Vieljeux (president of the shipping company Delmas Vieljeux). Together, they produce Bordeaux wine but above all "Cantinot". They are now assisted by Tristan, their youngest son, and Sophie, his companion.
One meeting that marked us was with Olivier Dauga, our muse, who allowed us to reveal great vintages year after year. He advises us on a daily basis. For us, Château Cantinot is above all a great wine story that begins with a great water story.
Grassing is natural. Sometimes, weeding is done by hand under the rows. We thin the leaves manually and with control in order to give the vines resistant berries with a good sugar content. Our wines are made in several ways depending on the needs: stainless steel and concrete tanks, Burgundy barrels, truncated conical wooden tanks, microvinification maturing.
