Les Allées de Cantemerle 2011 Haut-Médoc


Château Cantemerle is a 5th "Grand Crus Classés" of Médoc and benefits from a huge reputation worldwide. Its second wine, made from the young vines of the estate, has a similar profile but can be tasted earlier than its sibling, which needs several years in the cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon dominates this 2011, giving a powerful expression of dark fruit, hints of undergrowth and mushrooms. A very elaborated and nicely complex wine. Long finish and well-integrated tannins. An ideal bottle to try out what “Grand Cru Classé" means.
