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.

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.

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.

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 chateau s young vines, and is made like its elder brother. Les Allees 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%

Cantemerleandrsquo;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 wine seems almost light in comparison to its peers, but it possesses an ethereal seriousness, purity, and overall harmony that are striking for its delicacy and finesse. A blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest primarily Merlot with a tiny dollop of Cabernet Franc, it should be at its finest between 2012andndash;2025+.
