Wine Description

(1997 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.

    (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.
