Part of Best Médoc & Haut-Médoc, Moulis & Listrac 2019 wines tasted en primeur
"Enticing aromatics, clear cassis fruits, astringency on the tannins which bodes well for the ageing as they also have good pliability. Not quite up with their very best vintages but we are getting close here, with tension to the core of the wine, well-judged berry fruit extraction, and clear structure overall. Great Médoc signature. 4% Petit Verdot completes the blend.
Drinking Window 2027 - 2042."
JAMES SUCKLING 93-94 Points
19 May, 2020 – "Crushed berries and walnuts with red-chilli and mushroom notes. It’s medium-to full-bodied and soft. Juicy at the end. Ripe tannins and good balance."
JANCIS ROBINSON 16.5 Points
Drink: 2026 - 2034
"68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot. Barrel sample.
Really quite graceful in a Margaux sort of way. Fresh, zesty nose with cassis and graphite notes. Juicy and long with plenty of delicately etched tannins offering refinement to the palate. Sufficient fruit weight. Clean, persistent finish with no excess. (JL)"
THE WINE ADVOCATE (89 - 91)
Drink Date: 2023 - 2036
"Sporting a deep garnet-purple color, the 2019 Cantemerle springs from the glass with exuberant notions of raspberry preserves, crushed blackcurrants and Morello cherries plus hints of cloves, cassia, eucalyptus and melted chocolate with a waft of dried herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate has a real skip in its step with crunchy red and black fruit flavors and a racy line of freshness, finishing a little chewy. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown, 9th Jul 2020."
