"Cantemerle remains one of the top values among the Classified Growths. It’s an estate you can count on to produce elegant, character driven wines at a fair price."

Pin It

"Château Cantemerle is a medium bodied, light, fresh, elegantly styled, charming Bordeaux wine that drinks well young and is usually best enjoyed during the first two decades of life, even in the best vintages.

— The Wine Cellar Insider

Château Tasting   The wine’s deep, dark colour immediately displays its youth and potential. The nose, while still somewhat reserved, nevertheless shows hints of spices and blackcurrant aromas which will become more pronounced with time. On the palate the attack is both ample and firm: very ripe tannins immediately cover the mouth, and pure, clean fruit aromas create an impression of great opulence. An underlying liveliness delivers a fresh and firm finish.
