Tasting Notes
91 - Wine Enthusiast
2008 : « Always an attractive wine, Anthonic is in good form in 2008. It has weight as well as fruit, giving a ripe, rounded character to go with its tannins. It feels dense, although not heavy, and has a solid chunky, smoky finish. »
15/20 - Jacques Dupont Le Point
2009 : « Fruits noirs, bouche ronde, voluptueuse, bonne longueur, frais, vif, serré, belle matière, tanins de qualité. »
3 étoiles - Decanter
2010 : « Round supple cassis fruit, nice balance and lengh. »

My first wine memory
The special noise "glou-glou" made by the wine when you begin to pour it from a full bottle.

One word to describe my wine
Charm

The history of the Château
Château Anthonic is one of the oldest wine estates of Moulis (end of the 18th Century) but his current name dates only from 1922 (it was a tribute of the then owner to his father Antonic Hugon). It's also by then that the label was designed: it represents 2 eagles fighting for a grape, an allegory of the tension between the wine estate and the wine merchant for the harvest. Bought 1977 by Pierre Cordonnier, château Anthonic is under the leadership of his son Jean-Baptiste since 1993.
