At the tasting, the Chateau Cantemerle 2016 develops attractive aromas with subtle notes of tobacco. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied, with tannins of great suppleness and deep fruity flavours combined with tasty touches of blackberries, cedar and graphite. The wine is precise with good tension.
