A note about our product information
The history of the Cantemerle vineyard has its origins in the Middle Ages, with the lords of Cantemerle. After changing ownership several times, the castle became the property of Mutuelles d'Assurance de SMABTP in the 1980s. Chateau Cantemerle, Grand Cru Classé in 1855, is one of the flagships of the DOC Haut-Médoc. The historic 90-hectare vineyard produces elegant and refined wines that reflect the spirit of the property and the people who animate it.
The wine is an elegant blend of 71 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 25 % Merlot, 4 % Petit Verdot. The grapes come from 30 years old vines, planted on quaternary gravel and silica soil. The wine ages in 40% new French oak barrels for 12 months.
