Opened 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.
Lovely ripe tannins, medium-bodied. Dry, fresh and appealing. Also available to purchase in the UK via The Wine Society
A corked bottle...undrinkable.
Hard and thin after opening opening up after decanting and an hour. Slightly musty nose with a blacker fruit emerging after being open, The structure remained a little tight as long as the bottle lasted.
External Reviews for 75 Cantemerle Medoc Bordeaux W.h. Frank
Therersquo;s no question this wine shows terroir character, even if itrsquo;s wild and strange: distinctively green, with the scent of ratatouille and pine boughs at at Christmas time, this also packs round and supple red fruit. Itrsquo;s an intriguing wine, and should age with some distinction.
Cantemerle's new proprietors believe in producing delicate, beautifully wrought, finesse-styled wines that require some introspection. The deep ruby-hued 2005 displays aromas of licorice, roasted herbs, sweet cherries, and flowers. In the mouth, the ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Cantemerle 750ml
Opulent. Intense aromas of currants, cigar tobacco and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins and a long finish. Well-made. Best after 2008.
This is a nicely textured, plum/ruby-colored 2000 with a moderately intense bouquet of black fruits intermingled with licorice, vanilla, and plums. The wine is pure, elegant, medium-bodied, and stylish. While not a blockbuster, it is delicious, nicely structured, and accessible. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2016.
A fine effort from Cantemerle, the deep ruby/purple-colored 1996 exhibits an excellent mulberry, jammy cranberry, and currant-scented nose with floral characteristics and high quality vanillin. In the mouth, the wine reveals rich, sweet, ripe fruit on the attack, fine density, moderate tannin, and obvious balance. It will require 5ndash;6 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2004ndash;2018.
With its rather earthy, rustic aromas, this wine is old-fashioned, showing hard tannins and not much else at this stage. In time, if the fruit appears, this may be a nice wine.
The 1995 does not possess the depth of the 1996, and reveals a more evolved medium ruby color that is already lightening at the edge. Peppery, herb-tinged red currant fruit aromas are pleasant, but uninspiring. This medium-bodied, straightforward wine lacks the depth, dimension, and power of a top-flight classified growth. It will be at its best between 2001ndash;2010.
