(From 2004 Vintage) Complex nose. Black and red fruit, hints of tobacco. Structured and earthy combining vibrant fruit with measured acidity.
(From 1999 Vintage) In accordance with the Cordier and now the winemaking philosophy of Philippe Dambrine, the style of Cantemerle has changed, beginning with the 1981 vintage. The color of the wine has darkened and the wine has taken on an extra richness and measure of fruit. It has exquisite flavors and it is rare to find fruit flavors of such refinement.
