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.

Dark ruby color with intense aromas of cassis, woods and wild raspberry. Medium-bodied, layered with dense, spicy flavors and chewy tannins. Elegant balance and fruit purity on a lingering finish.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Following enormous investment and changes both in the winery and vineyard management, this 5th classed growth is now proud of its heritage and justified place in the 1855 classification. This second wine of Chateau Cantemerle comes mainly from the château’s young vines, and is made like its elder brother. Les Allées de Cantemerle has the same personality as the grand vin but is ready to drink earlier. Grapes : 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 62% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc Region : France / Bordeaux / Haut Medoc AOC Maker : Philippe Dambrine Notes : Lovely nose of cedar combined with chocolate which is carried through to the palate. A rich and fleshy wine drinking superbly now. ABV : 12.00%

Cherries, bacon and leather on the nose. Plums and currants on the mid pallet, light smooth tannins on the finish. Nice balanced wine, good value.
