Jane Anson- 93 - Intense in both colour and structure, a wine that knows how to make an impact, and it is carrying itself with confidence. Impressive, full of nuanced cassis and bilberry fruit, with liquorice and smoked earth, hints of richly spiced vanilla patisserie cream showing the ripeness of the vintage. This is good, a little abrupt on the finish with a bitter almond kick. Tight tannins at this point. 40% new oak for ageing.

James Suckling 93-94

Currants, blackberries and hints of bark and forest floor. Medium-bodied with creamy tannins and a flavorful finish. Pretty balance to this.

Vinous 89-91

Neal Martin "The 2022 Cantemerle has a feisty bouquet with perfumed blueberry and blackberry fruit, showy with an almost sorbet-like character. The palate is medium-bodied with blackberry and strawberry fruit, licorice and white pepper. It teeters on becoming a little cloying toward the finish and will need a very prudent barrel maturation. Hopefully, it will muster a bit more finesse."

Parker 92-94

William Kelley "The finest wine this estate has produced in some time is the 2022 Cantemerle, a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Cabernet Franc that bursts from the glass with aromas of sweet blackberries, violets, rose petals and spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with an enveloping core of sweet, perfumed fruit framed by supple tannin, it concludes with a long, mouthwatering finish. The pH is a very healthy 3.6 this year, and yields were low at 29 hectoliters per hectare."
