Description/ Tasting Notes

Medium-bodied palate offering warm plums, black cherries and mulberries with an earth and bay leaves undercurrent. Nice fresh tobacco and iron details, enough fruits with pleasantly chewy tannins, finishing with a herbal lift. 

Winery Info/ Brand

The Château of Cantemerle, bordered the Garonne River and made up part of the line of fortifications that defended the banks of the Médoc region, just over half a mile from the present château has a tradition of wine making tracing back to the Middle Ages period.

Region Info/ Origin

Since historial times, the Haut-Médoc was a vast region of salt marshes used for animal grazing rather than viticulture. In the 17th century, Dutch merchants began an ambitious drainage project to convert the marshland into a usable vineyard area. Using advanced technology during that period, the Dutch were able to convert enough marshland to allow large estates to form all along the Gironde. Soon the Bordeaux wine regions of Margaux, Saint-Julien, Pauillac and Saint-Estèphe took shape. By the 19th century, the wine region of the Haut-Médoc was one of the most prosperous in France, with wine that had an international reputation that would be unparalleled until the late 20th century.
