K&L Notes

91 points Neal Martin for Vinous: "The 2016 Cantemerle has a fresh bouquet of airy, floral black fruit; light violet scents emerge with time. The sorbet-fresh palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, and blood orange mingles with supple red fruit toward the graphite-infused finish. Delicious, classic and probably destined to age with class. Maybe a great value to boot?" (01/2019)

    The 2016 is a sleek style with crunchy mixed berries and dark boysenberry fruit filling the dark, cool middle. This is fresh and lifted, showing the precision of the vintage but still holding back on the richness that is buried in the middle

    Dense, serious intense flavors that work together in such a harmony; so, as serious this wine is, it will not be overwhelming at all. Black currant, black berries and a touch of smokiness. Smells like pine trees and has a dash of herbal notes on the nose. It is a beautiful Cab-dominant wine with long-lasting finish, and a divine addition to your steak dinner.

    I've said it many times before, and I'll say again. There is no better value in world-class Haut-Medoc red Bordeaux than that made by Chateau Cantemerle. The 2016 is a prime example. It has a classic profile of fleshy, ripe black currant and plum fruit, graphite and spice with a perfectly balanced oak frame. Even in its youth, the tannins are refined and supple, and the acidity will take it the distance. If you collect Bordeaux, this is a no brainer.

    The 2016 Cantemerle has a fresh bouquet of airy, floral black fruit; light violet scents emerge with time.This wine is always one of the best values in Bordeaux and 2016 is no exception. Full and fine on the palate. Will cellar well for many yars.

    Showing strong Cabernet characteristic, with notes of ripe berries and currents, along with an intriguing note of menthol. This is a tremendous value that should not be missed by those looking to buy some cases of a quality wine to drink within the next 5 or 10 years.
