de Chantegrive

the Lévêque family
Château de Chantegrive is located in Podensac in a beautiful Italian like setting overlooking acacia trees and vines typical of the Graves appellation.

The south-facing vines are surrounded by a low stone wall and soak up the warm sunlight on beautiful summer days. There are river stones ranging in colour from pink to beige on the vineyard’s fine sandy soil.

In autumn, one can hear the sound of secateurs as well as pickers singing. Grape bunches fill up crates as people tease one another and talk about their lives.

Chantegrive is a dream that knows no frontiers.

Created in 1966 by Henri and Françoise Lévêque thanks to the sale of their precious stamp collection, Chantegrive continues to please customers around the world. The wine is expertly blended, elegant, and refined. It is much appreciated for its reliable quality. In conjunction with the cellar master, consulting oenologist
Hubert de Boüard, owner of Château Angélus, ensures that Chantegrive is excellent in all vintages.
