Les Allées de Cantemerle Haut-Médoc 2018: A Classic Bordeaux with Modern Elegance 


Are you seeking a wine that embodies the rich tradition of Bordeaux with a touch of modern finesse? Then look no further than the Les Allées de Cantemerle Haut-Médoc 2018. This second wine from Château Cantemerle offers a delightful drinking experience, showcasing the classic characteristics of the region with a touch of approachability.

A Legacy of Quality

Château Cantemerle boasts a prestigious history dating back to the 12th century. Located in the Haut-Médoc appellation, renowned for its exceptional red wines, the estate meticulously cultivates grapes on gravel-rich soil, ideal for fostering Cabernet Sauvignon, the dominant grape in this blend. The 2018 Les Allées de Cantemerle continues this legacy, crafted under the watchful eye of winemaker Gregory Thibault.

Tasting Notes: A Well-Structured Delight

The Les Allées de Cantemerle 2018 greets the nose with an inviting bouquet of ripe red and black fruits, dominated by plums and cherries. Hints of cedarwood and a touch of savoury earthiness add complexity, hinting at the wine's potential for development. The palate is met with a burst of concentrated fruit flavours, balanced beautifully by firm yet smooth tannins. This structure provides a pleasing grip and ensures the wine's ageability.

Food Pairing Recommendations

The Les Allées de Cantemerle 2018's structure and bold fruit flavours make it a versatile food pairing companion. Here are some delectable options to elevate your dining experience:

  • Roast Lamb: The robust tannins of the wine can stand up to the richness of roast lamb, while the fruit flavours complement the savoury notes of the meat. Rosemary or thyme-infused gravy adds a delightful herbal touch.
  • Beef Bourguignon: This classic French dish is a perfect match for the Les Allées de Cantemerle. The slow-cooked beef and rich sauce find harmony with the wine's depth and structure.
  • Grilled Portobello Mushrooms: For a vegetarian option, try pairing this wine with grilled portobello mushrooms. The meaty texture of the mushrooms complements the wine's body, while the smoky char notes find resonance with the cedarwood hints.
  • Hard Cheeses: The Les Allées de Cantemerle pairs well with aged cheddar or Gruyère cheese. The creaminess of the cheese cuts through the wine's tannins, creating a delightful textural contrast.
