Drink from 2025 to 2045.
Tasted by James Suckling in 2021: "A red with lots of currant, blackberry, fresh herb and tobacco character. A hint of mushroom too. With smooth, chewy tannins, there is a bright, fresh finish. Very long and concentrated. Give it time to develop. Very classic character of the appellation here."
History of the Château :
The history of Château Cantemerle dates back to the 12th century, when the estate was a medieval fortress belonging to the Villeneuve-Durfort family. Over the centuries, the estate changed hands several times, passing from French nobility to middle-class families.
Château Cantemerle's reputation as a producer of quality wines developed in the 19th century thanks to the astute management of the Dubos family, who made major improvements to the vineyard and winemaking facilities. The estate also benefited from the reputation of the Médoc terroir, which is renowned for producing fine, elegant red wines, particularly from grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
MORE ABOUT THE WINE :
- Today, Château Cantemerle covers some 87 hectares of vines, mainly planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Château Cantemerle wines are renowned for their elegance, balance and ability to age well.

- In addition to its commitment to producing high-quality wines, Château Cantemerle has also invested in sustainable, environmentally-friendly viticultural practices.
