Located on the slopes of one of the highest hills of the Prignac region of the Medoc, Chateau Chantelys ' vineyards alternate limestone and clay veins covered with sandy-clay soils. These soils bring strength and vigor to the wines. The vines average 35 years of age and are densely planted to limit yields. 60% Cabernet Sauvignon with a high proportion (60%), 30% Merlot and 10% Petite Verdot make up the blend. 2010 was a historic vintage in Bordeaux and the wine shows the rich character of the vintage. Wine Enthusiast Magazine made it an Editors' Choice scoring it 91 points and saying "This is a fruity, Cabernet Sauvignon-dominated wine, with tannins that support and balance the black currant flavor. Wood aging lightly brushes the structure."
