Comment from Andreas Larsson

Degustation note and comment from Andreas Larsson best sommelier of the world.

Château Cantinot - Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
France - Bordeaux - Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux - Red
"Medium deep ruby red colour. Fresh and fragrant nose with floral red fruit, an herbal spiciness, dense but rounded palate, juicy fruit with red currant, herbal and tobacco flavours, a hint of oak and a long rounded finish."

Château Cantinot - Collection Malbec 2015
France - Bordeaux - Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux - Red
"Intense dark purple core, floral nose with violet, ripe blackberry, plum and mild spices. The palate is dense, still youthful but rather mild tannin, floral dark fruit notes, cassis, a fresh acidity, pure fruit, fine oak and a long finish."

Château Cantinot - Collection Merlot 2015
France - Bordeaux - Blaye Cotes de Bordeaux - Red
"Intense dark ruby colour with a purple hue. Intense nose, fine oak, smoky with roasted coffee, ripe dark berries, cassis, blackberry and plum with tobacco notes. Dense and weighty palate, ripe dark fruit, fine oak, a fresh acidity underneath with layers of fresh dark fruit and a long lingering finish. Really good."

In this article published on December 12th on the By Wine Blog and wrote by Laura Clay, our Orbite 2010 is mentionned !

"The wines of Bordeaux’s côtes are often under-valued, or perhaps it’s just that they are little known in the UK. The Côtes de Blaye can produce some of the best  and this is one. In 2010 the Orbite was 100% Cabernet Franc which comes through blatantly on the nose. In a good way, of course. It’s beautifully attractive with flowers and red fruits dominating with just a bit of toasty oak in the background. The palate expresses concentrated fruit character balanced by a tangy freshness and bold tannins. I forgive it its lovely-to-look-at-pain-to-open wax seal!"
