Les Allèes de Cantermerle 2014 'You want a posh claret? Buy lots of me!'
Château Cantemerle Les Allèes de Cantemerle 2014. South of Margaux in France's Bordeaux region, in the wine appellation of Haut-Médoc, you'll find this château where wine has been made since 1354. The grapes for this wine (68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Merlot) are hand-harvested and after crushing ferment in conical wooden vats. The wine is then aged in oak for 12 months and is not filtered before bottling. In the glass you'll see a red wine of very deep colour, and aromas of tobacco and blackcurrant. The palate is gloriously rich and intense, aromatic and complex. This wine will age well for several years. Drunk right now, which I strongly recommend and it's nothing less than a wonderfully posh claret (as the Brits call Bordeaux reds...) Alc 13%. Cork.
