Description

A refined and fresh Haut-Medoc red wine

The estate

With origins that hark back to 1147, Chateau Cantemerle is one of the oldest estates in Haut-Medoc. Managed by the Cordier family, Chateau Cantemerle will seduce wine lovers with the style of its wines. Exuding harmony and elegance, the wine's expression is due to an utterly subtle aromatic palette and a very fine tannic structure.

The vineyard

Chateau Cantemerle 2021 is an Haut-Medoc wine that stems from a 96-hectare vineyard. The vines are 40 years old on average and are planted on a terroir composed of gravel and silica from the Quaternary period.

The vintage

Standing out from the last three sunny vintages (2018, 2019 and 2020), 2021 is a terroir-based vintage with a more classic style, resulting from a year marked by shifting weather conditions and a considerable disease pressure. Although the frosts on April 7th and 8th had a major impact on the vineyard, the teams’ rigor and the estate’s sandy-gravel soils led to the harvesting of healthy grapes that boasted a perfect ripeness level and thus revealed a beautiful freshness and bright fruit expression.

Vinification and aging

Hand-picked and sorted on the vine. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (40% new, 40% second-fill and 20% third-fill).

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (65%)

Merlot (21%)

Cabernet Franc (9%)

Petit Verdot (5%).
