The 2015 Cantemerle is almost outrageously delicious, and then the 16er comes along and maybe even tops it? It seems so, maybe it's just a stylistic question, 15 is more Burgundian-elegant, the 16 is more powerful and intense, but also very delicate.

When I arrived I noted the following: very dark color, violet. Open nose, ripe Cabernet, blackcurrants, medium wood, but it could also be that the opulent fruit swallows a lot of wood here. Great extract sweetness, long, charming, juicy and really tasty, very good tannin quality. Best Cantemerle ever? Looks like this. Frank Rembold in April 2018

Frank Rembold Nov. 2022: "dark color. Ripe Cabernet on the nose, beautiful wood, a slightly lactic tone is also present, still smells very young. On the palate with good extract and ripe tannins, is long and juicy, like You would expect it from this great vintage, but I would give it another 2-3 years to mature. A great Cantemerle in any case."
