Château Cantemerle 2014 has a bright and slightly glossy bouquet with blackcherries and boysenberry fruit, hints of tobacco and gravel coming through with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with quite "fat" tannin that lend this Cantemerle weight in the mouth, although I would have liked more precision and terroir-expression to surface on the finish. This is a "stocky" Cantemerle at the moment that just needs more sophistication.

Château Cantemerle is a Fifth Grand Cru Classé of Haut-Médoc, located in Macau. It benefits from an exceptional terroir of very filtering deep gravel allowing it to produce an exceptional grand cru each year. The wines, mainly made up of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), have a round and charming profile. Armed with fresh tannins and subtle aromas of blackcurrant and spices, they offer consumers the possibility of enjoying them in their youth. Nevertheless, Château Cantemerle remains a great wine for laying down that can be savored after several decades in the cellar.
