The History of the Château Anthonic
Château Anthonic is one of Moulis-en-Medoc’s oldest family-owned vineyards. In 1977, the Cordonnier family bought the property and after 25 years of work, the family restored the original vineyard. The vineyard is mostly composed of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Great Terroir of Château Anthonic
The vineyard of Château Anthonic cover an area 30 hectares between the famous appellations Margaux and Saint Julien. The terroir consists of clay and limestone soils, with some small parcels having sandy clay soil and Garonne gravel. Both hand-harvesting and machine harvesting are used, depending on the age of the plot, followed by an automatic sorting of the berries. The main focus of the winery is to limit yields to get a better concentration of flavours and a better quality of wines. The wines are matured for 18 months, including 12 months in French oak barrels. Château Anthonic started converting the vineyard to organic agriculture and as of 2019 they have obtained their organic certification.
