James Suckling, 94 points
“I like the floral character, which highlights the aromas of currants and berries. Full body and a firm and tight center palate. Silky tannins and a savory and creamy-textured finish. A beautifully balanced red. Try in 2021, but it’s already gorgeous to taste.”

“91–93. Barrel Sample. While the wine does have a strongly dry element, it also has a creamy, black currant background that shows promise for the future. With great acidity offering freshness, this wine will balance well.”
Wine Spectator, 90 points
“Bright and racy, with red currant and plum fruit lined with a lively tang of iron that streaks through the finish. A touch taut, but should unwind nicely with modest cellaring. Best from 2018 through 2024.”

Chateau Cantemerle is the second of the first well known Bordeaux estates you see as start the drive along the D2, as you head towards the Medoc, just after Chateau La Lagune. Chateau Cantemerle is also one of the oldest properties in the Bordeaux wine region. Historical documents listing the Lords of Cantemerle of La Sauve Majeur Abbey, can be dated all the way back to the 12th century. In 1999, under new ownership, drastic improvements in the vineyards and winery sent the quality of Cantemerle sky-high, and to this day it is a bit of an “insider” Bordeaux, known for overdelivering!!
We have a scant 24 cases to sell --- just amazing at this price! While it lasts!
