Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château Cantemerle, 5eme Cru Classé, Haut Medoc, 2022

This is one of the finest wines made here in recent times. It may even surpass the excellent 2015. Produced from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc, this has a wonderful, classical bouquet of violets, mint and gravelly cassis. The palate is pure and refined, a clear continuation of the nose. The mid-weight flavours are generous and well heeled, finishing with beautifully judged tannins packed full of fruit and minerals. A great Cantemerle. 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc.

Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux

Intense in both colour and structure, a wine that knows how to make an impact, and it is carrying itself with confidence. Impressive, full of nuanced cassis and bilberry fruit, with liquorice and smoked earth, hints of richly spiced vanilla patisserie cream showing the ripeness of the vintage. This is good, a little abrupt on the finish with a bitter almond kick. Tight tannins at this point. 40% new oak for ageing.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Independent

Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 Cantemerle bursts with bold notions of black cherry preserves and blackcurrant pastilles, followed by hints of bay leaves, fallen leaves, and tilled soil. The medium-bodied palate is bright and refreshing, with fine-grained tannins and an energetic finish.

Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2022 Cantemerle has a feisty bouquet with perfumed blueberry and blackberry fruit, showy with an almost sorbet-like character. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry and strawberry fruit, licorice and white pepper. It teeters on becoming a little cloying toward the finish and will need a very prudent barrel maturation. Hopefully, it will muster a bit more finesse.

Château Cantemerle

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.
