2018 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1407921 94-95 points James Suckling

 A rich and layered young Bordeaux with a solid center palate of ripe fruit and coated with ripe and polished tannins. Tightly wound ball now. Pretty texture and length to this.  (4/2019)

92-94 points Wine Enthusiast

 This wine shows rich dark fruit on top of firm, dry tannins. It has structure and concentration, offering a dense wine that is going to develop well. (RV)  (4/2019)

92 points Decanter

 There's an enjoyable texture and plush fruit in this elegant, well balanced wine. It has precise aromatics of black pepper, liquorice and freshly cut herbs. It's good but a touch more restrained than most of its peers. 33hl/ha. Aged in 40% new oak. 6% Petit Verdot makes up the blend. (JA)  (3/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Cantemerle delivers notions of crème de cassis, raisin cake and prunes with hints of Chinese five spice and dusty soil. Full-bodied and boldly fruited with dried berries and fruit preserves, it has a firm, chewy texture and just enough freshness, finishing spicy. (LPB)  (4/2019)

Wine Spectator

 Direct, with a stony accent to the red currant and damson plum flavors. A bit austere on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Drink now. (JM)

Lots of raspberry fruit, spicy, fresh, wonderful elegance and balance. Long finish, pure. Not an easy growing season for Cantemerle, this is a great effort!
