12 Rue d’Enghein, 33000 Bordeaux, France
Cantemerle is an ambitious fifth growth, making wines of third or
fourth growth standard. Tasty stuff.
Château Cantemerle 1997
Attractive open nose with smoky, mineralic and leafy-green notes.
Full ripe palate with good concentration and some tannins. Quite
complex. This is drinking nicely now and is an attractive, forward
wine that will be good for a few years yet. Very good+
Les Allées de Cantemerle 1996
Lovely open nose showing cedar and minerals. Medium-bodied palate
showing soft ripe fruit with a leafy edge. There are some tannins and
good complexity. An expressive, lighter style claret. Very good
