  • With a delicate, very elegant bouquet and a soft first impression on the palate, this wine delivers attractive blackcurrant and tobacco notes. Smooth, silky tannins and a delicate note of raspberry on the finish.

Situated in the Haut-Medoc, the Chateau de Cantermerle vineyard covers 91 hectares of vines. The soils are silica-gravel, which are a result of a thousand year old erosion of the Pyrenees by the River Garonne and form one of the fundamental elements of this quality vineyard. The soils are poor in nutrients, so the vines 'struggle', resulting in grapes with a high concentration of flavour. In addition, the small pebbles in the soil provide a filter and contribute to the grape's maturity by reflecting the sun's rays during the day and retaining the heat during the cooler nights. The vines have an average age of 30 years and are planted at a density of 8,300 vines per hectare, yielding between 50 to 55 hectolitres per hectare. The vines are pruned to the Medoc Double Guyot method and are grafted onto the phylloxera resistant 3309-10114 Riparia Gloire rootstock.

Following enormous investment and changes both in the winery and vineyard management, Château Cantemerle is a Fifth Classed Growth which is proud of its heritage and justifies its place in the 1855 classification. The Château is home to three
temperature controlled vat rooms with a total capacity of 8,000 litres and the cellars are all air conditioned, housing over 2,000 barrels. The second wine of Château Cantemerle comes mainly from the Château’s young vines and is produced in the
same way as its elder brother. Les Allées de Cantemerle has the same great personality as the Grand Vin, but is ready to drink earlier.
