Tasting Notes

With vineyards not far away from the village of Margaux, Chateau Cantemerle has always been a firm favourite with UK Bordeaux lovers - A more restrained, classic style than many 2009's making this a refreshing, elegant wine with stylish cherry fruits and herby character; Stash in the cellar and start to enjoy from late in this decade. James Griswood - Wine Buyer

Expert Opinion

What our expert says

16/20 Jancis Robinson

In the press...

Readers looking for the more ethereal, elegant side of Bordeaux need search no further than Cantemerle, one of the estates in the very southern end of the Medoc - Dense ruby/purple (nearly opaque), this wine offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, raspberries and black cherries. The wine is ethereal, medium-bodied, and by no means a blockbuster, but long and intellectual - However, the tannins are present, and the wine is certainly capable of putting on weight with time in the bottle - Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25+ years.

Regional info

The Left Bank refers to the area to the South of the Gironde river, and South of the Garonne River where it joins the Gironde - The soils here are gravel based and are more suited to Cabernet Sauvignon vines, which therefore always form the backbone of the wines from here - This is home to all five of the First Growths in the 1855 classification.
