A young, slightly tannic, somewhat austere but well-made, finesse style of Médoc, the 2005 Cantemerle displays a dark ruby/purple color followed by notes of forest floor, underbrush, cedarwood, and raspberry and blackcurrant fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2030.
Located in the southern part of the Bordeaux Medoc peninsula near the villages of Macau & Ludon, Château Cantemerle, designated a great growth in the famous 1855 classification, has deep gravel soil. Thanks to its unique terroir, Cantemerle produces complex, well-balanced, and refined wines.
After belonging to the Villeneuve (1579-1892) and Dubos (1892-1980) families, the Château was acquired in 1981 by Groupe SMA.
