Food Pairings for Château Cantemerle Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
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.

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 Château Cantemerle Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
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.
Good medium ruby . Reticent aromas of black cherry and licorice. Bright, tight and high-pitched, with very fresh flavors of dark fruits and flowers currently dominated by firm tannic spine. A bit youthfully tough and in need of at least several years of cellaring.
(Barrel tasting) Opulent red. Intense aromas of tar and dried herbs. Full-bodied, with currant bush character and very rich, velvety tannins. Long finish.
Ready to pull the cork, with simple berry an chocolate flavors, medium body and medium tannins, but should improve with some age. Drink now.
Wine Advocate ReviewRated 90Cantemerle'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 2012-2025+.
There's no question this wine shows terroir character, even if it'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. It's an intriguing wine, and should age with some distinction.
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.
Second wine of Chateau Cantemerle from the Haut Medoc region of Bordeaux. A ripe ad busy bouquet of bramble fruit, cedar and soft spice. The palate is medium bodied with good fruit concentration and silky tannins.
