Case Discount: 10% Off Case Discount
Notes:We know. Spring and Summer are approaching. The season for drinking white wine and rose is near. But before we dive into the pool we're giving one last red wine hurrah! So, this week we are going back to one of the most famous wine regions in the world, Bordeaux, France.
We have chosen to showcase Les Allees de Cantemerle, the 2nd wine of the famed Chateau Cantemerle of Haut-Medoc, where wine has been made since the 14th century. For those who may not know, many chateaux commonly make a " second label" which is a more economically priced wine compared to the main bottling of the property. Many of these wines are quite good in their own right. This wine is no exception.
In the wonderful 2015 vintage, the chateau has produced the best Allees to date. With its crimson color and beautiful bouquet of cassis, violet, dark chocolate, plums, and cedar it dazzles with a medium/full-bodied, nice texture, and voluptuous feel on the palate with hints of smoke and eucalyptus. Its firm structure gives way to a long, round, generous finish. Delicious to drink now, it will continue to excel over the next decade. We classify it as an instant classic!
