Chateau Cantemerle - Haut Medoc - red - 2014 - 750 ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“ The Château Cantemerle 2014 has a bright and slightly glossy bouquet with blackcherries and boysenberry fruit, hints of tobacco and gravel coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite "fat" tannin that lend this Cantemerle weight in the mouth, although I would have liked more precision and terroir-expression to surface on the finish. This is a "stocky" Cantemerle at the moment that just needs more sophistication.” Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
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.
