2012 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

With a dense, ruby/purple color, low acidity, ripe tannin and well above-average depth, this is really an elegant, cleanly made, pure style of wine, with floral notes, mixed with blueberry and black cherry. It’s medium bodied, with light tannin and is best drunk over the next 10-12 years.

The Cantemerle has a fine bouquet that demonstrates clarity and lift – graphite infused black fruit, expressive Cabernet fruit to the fore. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, edge tannins and a lovely citric seam that cuts through the mocha-tinged fruit. The oak feels a little heavy-handed at this stage, but it should integrated well and become a fine Cantemerle for the vintage. Tasted April 2013.

This red shows some cassis, blueberries and floral notes on the nose. Some tar, too. Medium to full body, juicy tannins and a fruity finish. Enticing wine. Drink now or hold.
