In the Middle Ages, the château of Cantemerle, seat of the jurisdiction of the same name, bordered the Garonne River and made up part of the line of fortifications that defended the banks of the Médoc region, just over half a mile from the present château.<br><br> The oldest known manuscript known which mentions the name of the Lords of Cantemerle is the "Grand Cartulaire" of La Sauve Majeur Abbey, dating to the twelfth century. The monks recorded there all transactions executed within the monastic community.
Deep color, peppery aromas, a fresh first impression, constant presence on the palate and a lively finish, all the qualities of the vintage are present here. Aromas of tobacco and black currant give good expression to Cantemerle’s terroir. This wine is full of promise, offering greater pleasure than one might expect from a second wine. Its length leaves attractive flavors of black fruit, and the wine’s density and aromatic complexity call for several years of further aging.
