Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot
75cl * 13% ABV * Haut-Medoc, France
Château Cantemerle is situated in the stunningly beautiful far south of the region, on the outskirts of the city of Bordeaux. A Fifth Growth in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification (although technically it was missed off and officially added in 1856, a rare amendment to the legendary map). 2017 Cantemerle has a sultry bouquet ,with blackberry, woodland undergrowth and some smokiness that gradually unfurls from the glass. Rich plum and dark damson fruit, a hint of cocoa and cinnamon on the palate, with real elegance and restrained power.
