Château Cantillac - Prestige
AOC Bordeaux Red
A deep purple Merlot displaying intense blackcurrant and blackberry notes first of all, complemented by hints of spice and vanilla. The same aromas, highlighted by fresh menthol notes, are apparent in rich, dense extract lining a well-structured palate with powerful tannins just waiting to mature. An excellently crafted wine despite this great vintage, the fruit of untiring, uncompromising labour which has enabled the typical characteristics of Merlot and the high quality of the terroir to be expressed.
Ready for drinking from 2019 – or in three years’ time for a different tasting experience.
This wine has a deep color with purple reflections, announcing its great richness. The generous bouquet of very ripe Merlot is expressive and reminiscent of red fruit jam, blackcurrant, blackberries, with a floral touch of hyacinth. The palate is ample, suave, complete and tasty. The harmonious structure appears balanced with tannins supported by a fleshy structure. A terroir wine that reflects the great maturity of the grapes.
Ready for drinking from 2021 – or in three years’ time for a different tasting experience.
