  • What the experts say...

    " Le 2001 de Cantemerle s'annonce par un rubis opaque et par de doux arômes de fleur d'acacia nuancés de mûre, de cassis et de subtiles notes de chêne neuf. Ce vin étoffé, dont le fruité mûr est étayé par une acidité et des tannins fondus, est merveilleux à la fois d'aquilibre et d'élégance." Source : R. Parker

    Information about domain Château Cantemerle

    An 1855 Cru Classé, Château Cantermerle's vineyard consists of plots of fine gravel soil beside the Gironde estuary.

    Wine production at this property can be traced back to 1350, which now belongs to the French insurance group, Mutuelles d'Assurances du Bâtiment et des Travaux Publics. The beautiful château has a magnificent park and a particularly well-cared for vineyard. The grapes are harvested and meticulously sorted by hand; each plot is then vinified separately in oak vats. The selection process at the blending stage determines what proportions of which vats go into the first and second wines, with rigorous respect for the maintenance of cru classé quality.
