1983 Chateau Cantemerle Haut-Medoc

Wine Description

(From 2001 Vintage) Very deep color, impressive extraction, tobacco-y cassis nose and attractive Cabernet, leafy, fragrant fruit, good middle palate and good sense of terroir, fresh and quite classic.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1995 Vintage) The 1995 Cantemerle is drinking outstanding now! This medium bodied effort is a great idea for Bordeaux lovers who are looking for an excellent red to enjoy now while they wait for some of their newer 1999’s and 2000’s to mature. This estate has been a hot spot for Bordeaux lovers in recent years and demand continues for some of the back vintages from this estate. At this price point, the 1995 Cantemerle is a very attractive bargain and a delicious wine to enjoy tonight

    (From 1990 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Lovely cherry red rim, with distant fruits on the nose. Crisp and beautifully balanced fruit on the nose; solid body and structure on the palate with rich fruits. A very attractive and very fine wine.
