Cantemerle 2022

Cantemerle

Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 94.0

Distinguished by a wealth of woody and vanilla notes that are dripping in fruit, Château Cantermerle is a fresh, vibrant wine characterised by crisp tannins. Its soil is laced with silica and gravel eroded from the Pyrenees over thousands of years by the river Garonne – the essence of this sublime, momentous landscape whispers through its distinctive and robust flavour. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.68%), Merlot (c.22%), Cabernet Franc (c.5%) and Petit Verdot (c.5%), cultivating in a powerful bouquet of fruit aromas and flavours that provide it with the enviable ability to be enjoyed young. But for those who are prepared to wait, the Château Cantemerle continues to develop graciously with age.

Georgina Hindle

Clean and clear, immediately quite sleek and focused on the palate. Ripe and round but maintains direction from start to finish with succulence and supple fruit. Very lovely and very drinkable, clean and clear with balance and harmony. Dark fruit, cool freshness, mouthwatering acidity, slight graphite and flint touches and really well worked tannins. Impressive. Will be very enjoyable and easy to drink. Harvest 12-27 September. Ageing 12 months in French oak, 40% new, 40% one year old 20% two years old. 5% Petit Verdot completes the blend.

Intense in both colour and structure, a wine that knows how to make an impact, and it is carrying itself with confidence. Impressive, full of nuanced cassis and bilberry fruit, with liquorice and smoked earth, hints of richly spiced vanilla patisserie cream showing the ripeness of the vintage. This is good, a little abrupt on the finish with a bitter almond kick. Tight tannins at this point. 40% new oak for ageing.
