A typical Haut-Médoc red wine

The estate

With origins that hark back to 1147, Château Cantemerle is one of the oldest estates in Haut-Médoc. Managed by the Cordier family, Château Cantemerle will seduce enthusiasts with the signature style of its wines, exhibiting great harmony and elegance through a subtle aromatic palette and a tannic structure full of finesse.

The vineyard

Château Cantemerle produces Haut-Médoc wines that stem from a 93-hectare vineyard. The vines are 40 years old on average and are planted on fine, deep gravel. The presence of silica-gravel deposits dating from the Quaternary period is a noteworthy feature.

Vinification and ageing

Manual harvests with sorting of destemmed fruits, then vinification in wooden, stainless steel and cement vats. Ageing lasts for 12 months in French oak barrels, of which 40% are new.

The blend

Château Cantemerle 2015 comprises a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (59%), Merlot (27%), Cabernet Franc (8%) and Petit Verdot (6%).

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cantemerle has a nose of warm plums, blackberries and red currants with a waft of fragrant earth. Medium-bodied with nice vibrancy and freshness, it offers approachable tannins with a lift to the finish.
