Added Jul 22, 2009 at 11:31amTannic and structured but nothing came together in time. Could be shut down??

Added Jul 22, 2009 at 11:29amSpicy to moderate finish- very astringent and highly acidic, still apparent after an hour or two.
Added Jul 22, 2009 at 11:29amLong and spicy finish, leathery with some cloves very complex, (this is the second label of La Vielle De Cure)

Added May 28, 2009 at 10:38amOpened for one hour and then poured. Nothing really going on at first but then after another hour of air time, the aromas and tastes became apparent. Needs more time in the cellar. THis is going to require patience. One of the most complex Cantemerle's I have tasted as of yet.

Added Dec 16, 2008 at 6:23amNice caramel color some boytritis and wood on the nose. I was hoping for some almond flavors but it fell rather flat on the palate. Could be past its prime.

Added Dec 16, 2008 at 6:22amSome good fruit sweet with hints of leather. Elegant but we thought that it aged too fast due to the storage conditions.

Added Dec 16, 2008 at 6:21amAromas of peaches and honey, toasted almond. Some oak a nice balanced white wine

Added Dec 16, 2008 at 6:20amNice fruit on the nose medium acid, great balance. Some hints of cedar and berry flavors for the fruit. A great mature Bordeaux. Even after an hour it still held together.

Added Dec 4, 2008 at 8:37amOpened up and let air for about 30 minutes. At first, there was some leather like qualities that picked up on in the glass. On first taste there was evidence of ample fruit with mild acidity giving rise to a moderate finish. I found a nice balance of both fruit and some oak, but not overwhelming. I will finish the bottle on the second night to see if any additional notes come to mind. A great wine for the vintage. Drink up (89 pts.)
