60% Cabernet Sauvignon – 30% Merlot – 4% Petit Verdot – 6% Cabernet Franc
The 2010 vintage brought out all the best in Cantemerle’s terroir. A deep color sets the tone for this wine: complex, concentrated and long in the mouth, with a finish which just doesn’t finish, leaving an impression of great aromatic richness.
The wine’s dense structure is masterfully controlled, showing elegance without heaviness, and a liveliness highlighting its freshness. Swirling brings the wine alive in the glass, with aromas of spice, tobacco, black currant and plums. This is Cantemerle’s natural character, with the added richness a great vintage brings.
