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.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2040
