Bordeaux 2016: Cantemerle & Chateau Rieussec

Bordeaux 2016: Cantemerle & Chateau Rieussec
In this case, the 2015’s the winner.

Cantemerle was once again the pick of the Medoc UGC. This 5th growth Chateau really is on top form, producing seriously impressive wines. Alas, Cantemerle has been ravished by the recent frosts and will have a miniscule crop in 2017. Perhaps it was this misfortune has determined their decision to increase their price by 20%.

The 2016 is another superb wine, but the 2015 Cantemerle was just so ravishing, we’d recommend this at £255 per case over the 2016.

Also released today is the Domaines Barons de Rothschild’s Sauternes, Chateau Rieussec (£240/6).
