Medoc. Cru Bourgeois. 14%
Note: this Chantemerle of the Medoc, not the 5th Growth Cantemerle of the Haut-Medoc.
A chateau on the rise it seems. This is rather lovely, with classic left-bank aromas of cedar and cassis, well balanced open-knit palate. There is new oak and tannin but the fruit rides over top.
Very attractive now, though offers potential of some complexity with 5-10 years cellaring. Extraordinary value.
