    September 13, 2020 - Definitely more oomph than you might ordinarily expect from Cantemerle. Yet it still retains the sense of Margaux as opposed to Haut-Medoc that I often find here. A really lovely but slightly untypical bottle from this comparatively good value Chateau

    September 6, 2020 - 2020 retail purchase, perfect cork and fill. Same as last bottle. Dark red to rim. Opens over 1 hour, excellent nose of dark fruits, tobacco and earth. Medium body, ripe fruit, good balance and finish. Still young but giving a lot of pleasure. Excellent.

    July 31, 2020 - A decade in and this has a long life ahead of it. An extracted style with lots of tannin, smoky fruit, leather, and oak. Plenty of upside.
