Back in the US so here is my last review from my trip to 🇫🇷. Found on the side of the road at an unassuming low key Chateaux/tasting room close to Saint Emilion no reservations needed - the wines were pretty good - I liked them all but the basic 2014 Cantenac was really well done. 13.5% a ton of acid which already precipitated out. An enjoyable classic Bordeaux. Mostly dark berry flavors well done.

Best wine I have had in a long time! Tannins are smooth and the vanilla balances the fruit

Great nose. Tastes heavier than it smells. Supple, balances tannins.

Beautiful fruity nose. It tastes much heavier with smoke and tar dominating the fruit beneath. Might have profited from a slight decant.

Very smooth upper mid tier wine. Virtually no bite and goes great with charcuterie.
