Vincent Galineau’s vineyards are some of the best tended in Castillon – that’s why we poached him from a fancy château to be estate manager at our own property. At his award winning estate he makes small amounts of this velvety, ripe fruit claret.
We’ve been championing the wines of Castillon for more than 40 years now. They can be just as good as Saint Emilion next door, and many critics and top winemakers agree. Wine writer Oz Clarke wrote “Top Castillons are already good enough to make many Saint Emilion proprietors blush”, while famous names such as Derenoncourt and Graf von Neipperg have bought estates there. Château d’Anvichar has just five hectares of 35 year old vines on a limestone plateau – ideal for concentrated fruit. Owned and run by Vincent Galineau, a third generation winemaker, it’s named after his three sons, Antoine, Victor and Charles. Matured for a year in French oak, this is a silky, rich fruit claret. Decant an hour in advance and serve with roast red meats.
"Vincent Galineau works very hard at his small, family estate and the result is this fine classic red"
Jean-Marc Sauboua Buyer for Bordeaux
