Cantemerle 2015 has been released today at €19.8 p/b ex-negociant, up 13.1% on the 2014 release price of €17.5. It is being offered by the international trade at £210 per 12×75. As the chart above shows, this is higher than many recent physical vintages but represents a discount on 2005, 2009 and 2010.
There has been some variation in critic scores for the 2015. While Jean-Marc Quarin awarded it 88 points, James Suckling (95-96) questioned whether it might be the “best ever” Cantemerle. Neal Martin (90-92) called it “very fine” and added: “it finishes with some swagger”.
Cantemerle 2015 is a wine that has divided critics. Will it divide buyers, too?
