Tasting Note:

The 2016 Cantemerle was the clear pick of the Medoc, Listrac and Moulis UGC and a worthy successor to the splendid 2015. A beautiful bouquet of raspberry coulis, flowers and chocolate leads to a really attractive and suave mid-palate of ripe cassis. This has wonderful energy and freshness with just the right amount of gloss. There is a sexiness to the fruit, but there is also complexity to the fine lacy tannins. Bravo. 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 4 % Petit Verdot.
