Château de Candale stretches over 8 hectares (nearly 20 acres) across Saint-Emilion’s famous south-facing slope. This privileged location positions the vineyard right in the centre of the appellation’s greatest clay-limestone terroir slope. The wines of Château de Candale have wonderful finesse and display a fine balance between power and elegance. Over recent years, thanks to substantial investment, the wine’s style has been further enhanced to gain even greater finesse. Château de Candale is widely recognised by enthusiasts of fine wine and has enjoyed the accolades of international wine critics and the specialised press.

 

HISTORY

The origins of Château de Candale date back to the days of Lady Margaret of Suffolk Kendal, a descendant of Edward III, the King of England and Duke of Aquitaine. Her marriage to Count Jean de Foix allowed the latter to add to his titles that of Count of Candale (Count of Kendal).

Château de Candale has a deep and bright color. The nose is floral, spicy with notes of black cherry, plum, graphite and herbs. The palate is expressive, nuanced, generous and juicy with notes of black fruit.

Château de Candale offers a very beautiful complexity with a lot of personality and balance
