Chateau Cantemerle Les Allees de Cantemerle 2012

Les Alles de Cantemerle is the second wine of Chateau Cantemerle and it has aromas of blackcurrant and tobacco are followed by smooth, silky tannins. This is a wine with great finesse that will age well but can be drunk young if necessary. The grapes are a classic blend of red Bordeaux varietals which pair wonderfully with red roast meats, game or strong cheeses.

Following enormous investment and changes both in the winery and vineyard management, this 5th classed growth is now proud of its heritage and justified place in the 1855 classification. This second wine of Chateau Cantemerle comes mainly from the chateau's young vines, and is made like its elder brother. Les Alles de Cantemerle has the same personality as the grand vin but is ready to drink earlier.

Vinification
The grapes are hand-sorted before destemming and crushing. Fermentatio lasts: 6-8 days at 26 -28C followed by maceration for 28 -30 days. Ageing for 12 months in french oak barrels(medium toast) of which 20% are new. An ultra light fining is done but no filtration occurs prior to bottling

Viticulture
90 ha, 87 ha under production with an average vine age of 30 years and planting density of 9600 vines per ha.Yields 50/55 hl/ha.

Tasting Note
The wine shows attractive blackcurrant and tobacco aromas which are the dominant characteristics of its terroir. In the mouth its tannins are marvellously silky, with an expansive finesse and freshness producing a well-knit, etherial wine. It possesses an aromatic potential that a little patience and good cellaring will soon reveal.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
