"A red wine with a rather dense robe; the body is ruby, but the leg indicates a certain evolution. The nose is expressive, with a nice "spicy" touch; I feel notes of leather, tobacco, dry spices. The wine remains as fruity as ever, almost with a slightly sweet sensation. The aromas are ripe, with notes of sweet plum and sweet red berries. There is a hint of oak but well integrated and a slight roasted side. Full and supple on the palate; the tannins are well softened. I find this sweet fruity character, with plum, red berry notes, and a pinch more of that spice box. Fairly round and smooth in texture. Of a beautiful complexity, we find these persistent flavours in the finish. "Andreas Larsson, Best Sommelier of the World 2007.

The word of the Winemaker, :

This is THE "confidential" cuvée par excellence, produced by an "out of the ordinary" vinification: the whole bunches of grapes are tined in micro-vinifiers. Orbite is also distinguished by a different blend for each vintage and we only produce it in the best years.

Contenance : 75cL - Contenant : Bouteille

The Wine Estate

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 4,500 vines per hectare, which is a very good level....
