2011 CANTEMERLE / 佳得美酒莊

Something about Chateau Cantemerle

To find the origins of Chateau Cantemerle we must go back to the Middle-Ages, in 1147, and the Lords of Cantemerle. The management of the vineyard, sometimes entrusted to La Maison Cordier, allowed for the renovation of the vineyards. In the appellation of Haut-Médoc situated on fine and deep gravel, the vineyard covers an area of 90 hectares. The wine of Chateau Cantemerle plays on a register of charm and harmony. It seems that the word elegance best defines Cantemerle because of its soft tannins and subtle palette of aromas.

FROM THE
EXPERTS

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.

Tasted three times, the Cantemerle has a light fish scale nose with crisp dark black fruit and nicely integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, dusty tannins, a core of dusky black fruit and a foursquare, grippy finish that shows fine length. Classic Cantemerle for mid-term drinking. Tasted April 2012.

This is chewy, with dried-berry and stone character, plus hints of hazelnut. Full and juicy with firm tannins. Lasts a long time on the finish. Second wine of La Mission. Better in 2016.
