"To drink wine is to drink genius" said Baudelaire. Cantin's genius is to have successfully preserved this
property's complete heritage over the centuries. Château Cantin takes its name from the Latin word,
Cantio, a song. Of all the key players in the Saint-Emilion Grand Cru appellation, Château Cantin is
undoubtedly the Ténor, the soloist that receives all the attention and applause. Most of the buildings that
surround the Château’s main courtyard date from the 17th century. From 2009, Michel Rolland has been the consulting oenologist of the estate.
