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
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 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.
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.
(Barrel tasting) Opulent red. Intense aromas of tar and dried herbs. Full-bodied, with currant bush character and very rich, velvety tannins. Long finish.
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%
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.
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.
