    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Château Cantemerle, 5eme Cru Classé, Haut Medoc, 2009

    This is frequently one of our value picks. Cantemerle lies just to the south of Macau and enjoys a fine terroir, which in turn produces refined, delicate wines not that dissimilar to Margaux to the north. A tight knit bouquet, with brooding dark fruit overlaid with high toned berries and floral notes; very pretty. The palate offers plenty of depth with bright cherries, spice, and a wonderfully seductive texture of dark, deep, black velvet. The tannins are well rounded, ripe and one is left with a precise, pure fruit finish.

    Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent
    The 2015 Cantemerle is medium to deep garnet colored. It features notes of cranberry sauce and kirsch leading to hints of wild sage and forest floor. The medium-bodied palate is chewy and refreshing, with red berry layers and herbal sparks, finishing with a spritely lift.

    The 2015 Cantemerle offers an attractive blackberry, raspberry and blueberry nose, forward and more fruit-driven than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity and gentle grip, but comes across a little pushed toward the judiciously spiced finish. Give it another couple of years in bottle. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting.

    Château Cantemerle

    Cantemerle is a 5ème cru classé, located in the appellation of Haut Medoc. It was the last entry in the 1855 Classification; in fact it was something of a late entry... Its viticultural history can be dated back to 1354, but at this time the estate was better known for other forms of agriculture, particularly cattle and cereals. Situated just to the south of Margaux, Cantemerle is currently making excellent value, classical wines that reward aging but as is the modern way can be accessed in their youth.
