1993 Chateau Cantemerle Haut-Medoc

Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) Deep dark crimson. Sweet cherry chocolate on the nose. Rich but fluid. Lively, juicy, fresh and harmonious. Very attractive in a lighter style but has very good length too.

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.

  • Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines
    (From 2005 Vintage) Smelling a bit riper than many from this section of the Left Bank, the wine starts with aromas of currants and berries with toasty oak in hot pursuit. It is, however, less complete in its flavors that suggest a bit of concentration but fall short on depth and drift into muscular dryness at the finish. It has a good chance to find a more open stance in time, and it would not be the worst idea to take a chance by laying away a few bottles.
