"90-92 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""The 2016 Cantemerle has a tightly wound bouquet and it never quite delivers the detail and mineralitÃ© that some of its peers have produced in this vintage. There are attractive undergrowth scents and a touch of tobacco, but it does not leap from the glass with joy. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, good depth of fruit, blackberry laced with cedar and graphite. One sample was missed a little precision, however, a second and third demonstrated much more precision and tension. My score reflects this."" 4/17 #230 "
92 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 2016 Cantemerle has developed beautifully with Ã©levage. Pliant, silky and exceptionally balanced, the 2016 has the pedigree and complexity to allow for a number of years of very fine drinking. Moreover, the 2016 delivers serious flavor intensity without being at all heavy. Smoke, iron and cedar add character to a Haut-MÃ©doc that has a lot to offer." 1/19
94 Points, James Suckling, jamessuckling.com: "Plenty of menthol, blackberry and blackcurrant aromas in this elegant, medium-weight Haut-MÃ©doc that's got as much freshness as ripeness and a long, clean, mineral and herbal finish. An incredibly food-flexible wine! Drink or hold." 2/19
93 Points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: "Well-integrated tannins give this wine a rich, velvet character that is underlined by the blackberry fruits. The aftertaste is dense, concentrated and rich. Drink from 2025." 4/19
92 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: "Sweet fruit on the nose is joined by plum and touches of vanillin. It has a southern MÃ©doc feel, with almost-jammy fruit and a gourmet, damson streak. Edgy tannins hold the appealing, generous fruit, and the acidity is pretty high, but that's a signature of the vintage. A blend of the two Cabernets, Merlot and 4% Petit Verdot, aged for 12 months in oak, 40% new. Eric Boissenot consults." 10/18
