The new era of Chateau Anthonic

Date: 19-Jul-2017

Chateau Anthonic is one of Moulis-en-Medoc's oldest family-owned vineyards. Moulis en Medoc or Moulis as it more commonly known is the smallest of the Medoc appellations. Lying 14kms northwest of the city of Bordeaux, it lies closer to the Atlantic in the West of Medoc. Moulis is taken from the French word for windmill, ‘moulin’, for which the region is famous. Moulis stretches half way between Margaux and Saint Julien, on a narrow band some 7 kms long, on the left bank of the Gironde Estuary.
 
Established towards the end of the 18th century, it belonged to the Hugon family for an extended period of time. In 1993, Jean-Baptiste Cordonnier took over his father, Pierre Cordonnier who acquired the vineyard in 1977.
 
From August 2016, Château Anthonic officially started to convert to organic farming. For 3 years, the domain will be lead in a completely organic way before receiving the ‘Organic Agriculture’ certification in 2019.
