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

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.

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.

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 dark ruby/purple color is followed be sweet cranberry, mulberry an cherry fruit aromas. The wine reveals excellent ripeness on the attack, a lush, low acid, medium-bodied personality, and moderate tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2006ndash;2014.

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.

Shows blackberry and plum skin aromas, with hints of vanilla. Medium- to full-bodied, with soft, velvety tannins and a pretty, fruity aftertaste. An elegant, balanced style. Lingers on the palate. Best after 2012.

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.

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.
