Winemakers Note

The estate - A charming classified growth Located in the southern part of the Bordeaux Medoc peninsula, Château Cantemerle, Grand Cru Classé in 1855n has deep gravel soil. Thanks to its unique terroir, Cantemerle produces complex, well-balanced and refined wines. After belonging to the Villeneuve (1579-1892) and Dubos (1892-1980) families, the château was acquired in 1981 by SMA Group, a large mutual insurance company in the construction and civil engineering sector. The estate's long history is reflected in the château's distinctive architecture and the magnificent grounds that surround it. Cantemerle exudes rimantic charm and its wine has a magical feel to it! 2021 - A vintage of terroir 2021 is different from the sun-drenched trilogy of vintages of 2018, 2019 and 2020. It is a vintage of terroir, in a more classic style, produced from a growing season made complicated by the vagaries of the climate and high vine disease pressure. The tireless work put in by the whole team, the meticulous knowledge of the vineyard, and the estate’s warmish sandy-gravel soils enabled, despite challenging conditions, the harvesting of grapes that were phenolically fully ripe and in very good health. Laure Canu, Managing Director, tells you about this vintage Tasting Notes - "Balanced and full of energy" “Cantemerle is very comfortable with this type of vintage. The estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon shows great breed and soul and brings excellent tension to the wine. It provides the wine’s backbone. Both digestible and complex, 2021 is balanced and full of energy and characterised by its length of flavour.” Eric Boissenot, consultant winemaker.
