This second wine comes mainly from the château's young vines and is made like its elder brother. Les Allées de Cantemerle has the same personality as the grand vin, but a shorter ageing potential. As it ages more quickly, Les Allées de Cantemerle is generally ready to be consumed within several years of the vintage. This 2006 has finally emerged from its shell, achieving all the potential it showed in earlier tastings. Aromas of toast and oak emerge slowly before the wine reveals a smooth and silky texture with very soft tannins and wonderful notes of spice. Great value!
This unique soil and microclimate are reflected in the wine's personality. Cantemerle has a brilliant colour, a powerful bouquet, and a soft, lively flavour. It is rare to find such refined fruitiness. The bouquet begins with attractive aromas of tobacco and licorice which are typical of Cantemerle. This great wine can be enjoyed young, when it is charming, fruity, and marked by a vanilla taste which comes from well-integrated oak. On the palate the wine is long, lively, and refreshing, showing the fine character the Médoc’s Cabernet achieved in 2009. The first impression is forthcoming and the finish is ongoing.
