Tasting notes: “A real sleeper, the 2017 Cantemerle has turned out beautifully. Cedar, sweet tobacco, menthol, licorice and incense add pretty aromatic top notes in this super-refined Haut-Médoc. More than anything else, the 2017 stands out for its exceptional balance and alluring personality. This is a terrific showing"
Expert Rating: James Suckling, 92/100 | Vinous 92/100
How to Enjoy: With Beef, Pheasant and Game.
About the winery: Château Cantemerle is located in the southern part of the Haut-Médoc, close to the border with Margaux, which is probably one of the reasons for the rather charming Médoc style of this Château. The estate has an unusually long history, it was already mentioned in the 13th century. In 1855, Chateau Cantemerle was classified as a Grand Cru Classé for its outstanding wines. An impressive 93 hectares belong to the estate, 90 of which are planted with vines.
The wine of Chateau Cantemerle you can usually enjoy young, but it improves in the bottle for a very long time and continues to develop positively. Even softer is the second wine les Allées de Cantmerle, which is produced from the younger vineyards and is always a good buy.
