History and label

The name and the label of Château Anthonic are unusual for a traditional vineyard estate.

Re-baptised “Anthonic” in the 1920s by owner André Hugon after his father, Antonic Hugon, the property had previously been known by several different names: Puy de Minjon, Graves de Queytignan, Le Maliney. The insertion of the ‘h’ to the first name Antonic may be explained by Hugon’s orientation towards the lucrative market of England.

The drawing of this same era portrays two eagles fighting over a bunch of grapes, an image that may be interpreted as an allegory of the enmity between the négociants of Bordeaux and the vinegrowers. The choice of the name “Les Aigles d’Anthonic” (the Wings of Anthonic) for our second wine came therefore naturally to us.

My father, Pierre Cordonnier, bought Château Anthonic from the Hugon family in 1977. I succeeded him in 1993.
