While this will be a nicely balanced wine, given time, it seems a little pinched right now, however, I have every confidence that the pure Cabernet fruit will keep it on the right path.

Their new Air-Pump's soft extraction is evident, a great tool in a vintage like this. No hard edges, no really dark notes, but certainly has some 'classic' claret lines and the fine grippy feel of the vintage. Core of fruit is good though with plum flesh and nice spice. Red fruit lifts the darker shadows. Lots of crisper firmer notes too of hedgerow berries. Pert and no excess. Just a really smart, uplifting feel. Tannins are fresh and chalky but ‘just-enough’. The team here compare 2020 to 2010 - but with more complexity. A very successful Cantemerle. One not to miss for the cellar. L&S (May 2021)

Gravel on Clay/Clay on a Chalk slab that is over 1m thick provides ample water storage when the going gets tough, similar to good spots on the right bank. This is where Merlot thrives and so it is not surprising it makes up almost half of this blend. Immediately there is a good feel to this. Polished - full - but not heavy. Great flow. Very nice aromatics - little bit of bright acidity keeps the drive forward, but also adds an upright feel to what could become quite serious and intense. Peppy berry-fruit, but with charm of ripeness too and ample grip - well balanced for the future. L&S (May 2021)

Aromatic and nicely floral on the nose, red fruits here but soon turns quite dark and serious. Attractive shape and feel overall, but really quite intense with a dark fruit line at the core. Lovely polished tannins don't completely hide the firm frame. Finishes with an admirably 'Trad' feel and flow. Very good.
The hot and dry summer means that the 2020 harvest is smaller than 2019 by 10-15%. a much repeated story this year. However, the La Lagune team are really pleased with how the vines coped with the drought and put their resilience down to the organic farming that has been practiced here for years.
