The 2014 is just starting to show really nicely yet has plenty of life ahead of it. This is by no means a blockbuster, being mid weight with classic Haut Medoc characters of dark fruits, pencil lead and touches of cedar perfectly balanced by well integrated tannins and decent acidity on the finsh.
A wine of notable precision, persistence and class, the 2014 Cantemerle is outstanding. Sweet tobacco, licorice, red cherry and dried savory herbs are some of the signatures. Medium in body and lively, the 2014 captures the best attributes of the year. This is a positively stellar showing.
