Chateau Chantemerle Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Chateau Chantemerle Medoc Cru Bourgeois

Powerful but balanced nose, full of ripe red fruit scents. Generous, plummy yet with a good acidity on the mouth showing the sturdy tannic structure of a long aging wine.
The Médoc region is "the most famous red wine district in Bordeaux, and possibly the world", writes Master of Wine Jancis Robinson. It’s home to storied appellations like Pauillac and Margaux, which house big-name châteaux and very pricey wines (Think Chateau Margaux at over $1000/bottle). But head just outside of these areas, and you’ll find small, family-owned estates producing delicious Bordeaux at far friendlier prices. Enter Chateau Chantemerle.

Located in the heart of the Médoc, Château Chantemerle is a Cru Bourgeois estate owned by the acclaimed Cruchon family and is a classic Bordeaux blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot from vines with an average age of 30 years.

The quality shows in the glass – and in the awards cabinet. A true insider’s find: superb quality at an affordable price.
