What the Critics say
One of the sleepers of the vintage, the 2015 Cantemerle is even better from bottle than it was from barrel. Dark cherry, plum, licorice, new leather and tobacco all flesh out in this inviting, resonant Haut-Médoc. A wine with gorgeous presence and no hard edges, Cantemerle captures all the sheer early appeal of the vintage. Cantemerle is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Merlot, with dollops of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.
Cantemerle’s vineyard is situated on fine, deep gravel in the Macau and Ludon villages of the Haut-Médoc appellation. A rich variety of factors produce complex, balanced, and refined wines, which reflect the exceptional nature of Cantemerle’s terroir. The property’s quality has firmly established it in the pack of the Médoc’s classed growths, and its continued presence there will always be due to the intrinsic quality of its terroir and how successfully it finds expression in each year’s wine
