Clos Cantenac is a small but seductive property of 6 hectares with carefully planted vines on an exceptional “terroir” of deep gravel, sand and clay over limestone situated close to the prehistoric “Megalith de Pierrefitte”.
This enchanting Saint-Émilion vineyard was purchased in January 2007 by Martin Krajewski, already the owner of Château de Sours, along with his great friend and wine enthusiast Marcus Le Grice from New Zealand. The first challenge was to take control of the day to day management of the vines, to improve the vineyard architecture, and then to renovate the ancient 200 year old winery in preparation for the first harvest in late September 2007. Now in their sixth year of ownership of Clos Cantenac, Krajewski and Le Grice continue to proudly respect both the history and culture of the region and to work in a traditional way to produce these fine wines.
