This is among the largest properties of the Graves commune, with 96 hectares under vine. Henri & Françoise Lévêque sold their stamp collection in 1966 to buy the first two hectares of what would become Château Chantegrive. Hubert de Bouard, owner of Château Angélus in St Emilion, consults on the wine making here.

"This estate was badly affected by frost - a real loss for the appellation, as this is one of the leading lights. But they have managed to produce a small quantity of this excellent white. Rich, round and succulent, it has a fleshy texture with white pears and white peaches. It's subtle but builds in power through the palate, and is going to give a lot of pleasure over the next five to 10 years. There's an excellent mouthwatering quality on the finish. Fermented and aged in 50% new oak with lees stirring for nine months. Drinking Window 2018 - 2025." Jane Anson in Decanter Magazine
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
