Château Cantemerle

Traces of the fortress of Cantemerle date back to the 13th century, and it was at the beginning of the 18th century that the vineyard really appeared almost in its present form.

This is a fifth Grand Cru Classé following the prestigious 1855 list, presented to Emperor Napoléon III.

The vineyard extends over approximately 90 hectares on a soil and subsoil of Garonne gravel and a silico-gravelly context Rare and the average age of the vines is 40 years. Grape varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon 50%, Merlot noir 40%, Petit Verdot 5% and Cabernet Franc 5%. The yield is 600,000 bottles depending on the vintage, i.e. 6,500 to 6,800 bottles per hectare.

All grapes are harvested by hand, and the small berries are sorted in the winery. Vatting lasts around 28 to 30 days, then the wine is aged in new barrels for around half of it, for 16 months before bottling.

Description Château Cantemerle 2014.

With its dazzling deep red color, it seduces on the nose with an expressive, complex bouquet featuring fresh red fruits such as raspberry and redcurrant.

These fruity notes are enhanced by subtle nuances of licorice and sweet spices.

On the palate, the wine offers a straightforward attack that evolves into more roundness thanks to very velvety tannins.

Red fruits express themselves harmoniously with subtle notes of baking. As for the finish, it's fresh, gourmand and persistent.
