About this Item

Haut-Medoc, 2010
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Château Cantemerle is a Bordeaux  Fifth Growth, located in the  Haut-Medoc on the left bank of the Gironde river. The estate has a long history dating back to the Middle Ages, with the first mention of wines from the property coming in the 14th Century. The modern history of the château began in 1892 with Théophile-Jean Dubos' purchase of the estate, and was passed down through the family until the 1980s. Many of Cantemerle's vineyards were pulled out during the two world wars, and were replanted in the 1980s,
The wine is Cabernet Sauvignon dominant, with smaller amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, and is made in a structured but fruit-driven style. 

Critics Ratings

‘The 2010 Cantemerle is vigorous and open on the nose, a mixture of red and black fruit with cedar and humidor scents. I admire the focus and detail. The palate is rounded in texture on the entry. This is a plumper, richer, more fruit-driven 2010 with a lush finish on the context of the growing season. You could broach this now, although I would prefer to leave it another three or four years. This is another excellent wine and candidate for most over-performing cru this vintage. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners 10-Year On Bordeaux horizontal. Drinking window 2022 - 2045.’ – Neal Martin, Vinous.com, 93/100 (Apr 2020)

‘Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Cantemerle gives up notes of cassis, baked plums and fragrant earth with hints of pencil shavings and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of bright, juicy fruit with a lively backbone and a bit of chew to the finish.’ – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, 90/100 (Mar 2020)
