Winemaker Notes

The finesse and complexity of a great Médoc terroir is evident in this wine, which should be decanted an hour before serving due to its very young age. First impressions are based on a deep color, delicate structure and supple tannins; its lightly wooded bouquet merely hints at the full range of aromatic expression to come. The style avoids simple excess, preferring to highlight a terroir known for producing well-knit, delicate and richly elegant wines of good breed—in short, a classic Médoc. Enjoy with poultry or veal roast beginning in 2015.

Blend: 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of flowers, mulberries, raspberries and blueberries. With dramatic quality and purity, this medium-bodied effort possesses sweet tannins and a texture that builds incrementally. A lighter-styled, but beautifully crafted, well done 2011, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.
JS 91
James Suckling
Aromas of currants and berries with hints of chocolate. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. Very fine. Cantermerle delivers in 2011. Better in 2016.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Supple and nicely focused, with currant, plum and cherry notes judiciously toasted, which lets a pretty floral note chime on the finish.

Image of winery
Located in the southern part of Bordeaux Medoc peninsula near the villages of Macau and Ludon, Chateau Cantemerle, designated a great growth in the famous 1855 Classification, has deep gravel soil. Thanks to its unique terroir, Cantemerle produces complex, well-balanced, and refined wines.

After belonging to the Villeneuve (1579-1892) and Dubos (1892-1980) families, the chateau was acquired in 1981 by Groupe SMA, a large mutual insurance company in the construction and civil engineering sector. The estate's long history is reflected in the chateau's distinctive architecture and the magnificent grounds that surround it. Cantemerle exudes romantic charm and its wine has a magical feel to it!
