Description

This second wine comes mainly from the cheau’s young vines, and is made like its elder brother. Les Allees de Cantemerle has the same personality as the grand vin, but a shorter ageing potential. As it ages more quickly, Les Alls de Cantemerle is generally ready to be consumed within several years of the vintage.

Tasting Notes

EYE: Deep ruby/purple color
NOSE: Spring flowers, raspberry and blueberry notes
MOUTH: Fruity aromas, delicate tannins, and an overall balance holds sway: this wine is all finesse and elegance. Two words will suffice: smoothness and charm. A touch of black currant here, a hint of vanilla there, some raspberry for good measure...this wine, with its delicate softness, is beginning to show its true character: a delicious and refined Medoc. Better than just a second wine, its immediate and heady pleasure is enthralling.
