Château Cantemerle 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Supple and friendly, with plum and cassis fruit imparting a caressing feel while lightly singed vanilla accents guide the finish..." WS 04/13 "Cantemerle’s ethereal elegance and racy, classy style are unmistakable in this understated yet pretty, dark ruby-colored 2012. Offering lots of cherry, raspberry and black currant fruit, this is a wine of unmistakable finesse and delicacy...89-91" WA 04/13

Limestone and grape seed aromas greet the nose which is nuanced and detailed. In the mouth this is a bit firm and chewy though with an innate sweetness to the grippy fruit. It feels a bit extracted on entry, then thins out a bit on the palate, but with attractive blackcurrant fruit and firm minerality, finishes with great refreshing tannin. 88pts
