Les Aigles d'Anthonic, the second wine of Château Anthonic, is an excellent introduction to the elegance of its big brother. It takes its name from a small species of eagles, the Circaetes Jean le Blanc, which fly over our vineyard every year.
"Second wines" from Bordeaux are wines that are from the same vineyards as the "great wines" of these wineries. These wines are produced from the younger vines, whose resulting wines are produced with the same effort as the "big brothers" a little less depth, but are often cheaper in price and therefore can be very interesting.
Château Anthonic is one of the oldest estates of the Appellation Moulis-en-Médoc. As a property of some standing, it was designated “Cru Bourgeois Supérieur” in the 1932 classification of the Crus Bourgeois of the Médoc.
Today the Château’s vineyards extend over some 30 hectares, mostly planted on the favourable clay-limestone soils of the Moulis plateau. These soils are complemented by parcels of sandy-clay and Garonne gravel which add complexity to this unique terroir. Certified organic from the 2019 vintage.
Situated between Margaux and Saint Julien, Moulis-en-Médoc is one of the six communal appellations of the Médoc, a region situated to the North-west of Bordeaux that enjoys an international reputation for excellence.
