Clos Cantenac SCEA
Clos Cantenac is a small but seductive 6 hectares property made up of four main parcels of vines carefully planted on an exceptional “terroir” of deep gravels, sand and clay over broken limestone situated close to the prehistoric “Menhir de Peyrefitte”. Jane Masters MW, Opimian’s Master of Wine, was fortunate to be at Clos Cantenac in September of 2018 during the harvest and experienced first-hand the bright sunny warm days that allowed grapes to be picked at leisure. Charlotte Krajewski, Martin’s daughter, has moved full time to Bordeaux, having spent the best part of the last ten years making wines in Australia and New Zealand, returning to Saint-Émilion purely at harvest time. Charlotte is now responsible for winemaking and all things technical at Clos Cantenac and Château Séraphine – the Krajewskis’ latest project in Pomerol.
