Tasting Notes

The 2016 Les Allées de Cantemerle is a straightforward, fruity wine to drink now and over the next few years. This is a solid showing from Cantemerle's second wine.

Score: 86Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, January 2019

A bright ruby colour in the glass, the nose is fragrant and vibrant with red berries, rose and a lick of sweet spice. The palate follows, with juicy red fruits bursting through lightly chalky and integrated tannins. Their is classic Medocain savour - with hints of camphor and cedar - but this is delicately structured and vibrant with fruit and acidity. This purity and lift lingers on a floral finish, making this perfect to drink now - one of the first 2016s that we have tasted which is perfectly ready to drink. Moreish, fruit-driven and approachable.
