This is an excellent, easy drinking Claret. Overt, fresh and cool on the bouquet with notes of blackcurrant, blueberries and laced with cedar and spice. The palate is fresh, the black fruits are succulent and the tannins finely grained. There are soothing notes of dried tobacco on the finish.
“Cantemerle is very comfortable with this type of vintage. The estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon shows great breed and soul and brings excellent tension to the wine.
It provides the wine’s backbone. Both digestible and complex, 2021 is balanced and full of energy and characterised by its length of flavour.” In the words of Eric Boissenot, Château Cantemerle’s consultant since 2005.
