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.
Lovely ripe tannins, medium-bodied. Dry, fresh and appealing. Also available to purchase in the UK via The Wine Society
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
Barrel sample. With its rather earthy, rustic aromas, this wine is old-fashioned, showing hard tannins and not much else at this stage. In time, if the fruit appears, this may be a nice wine.
Ruby-red. Perfumed aromas of blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate and sexy oak. Lush, suave, broad and dry, with a sappy cherry flavor enlivened by ripe acidity. Fine-grained and elegant but youthfully unforthcoming, even if the wine is more pliant than it appeared to be a year ago. Finishes juicy and persistent, with a firm tannic spine.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
