Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Showing a deep, elegant red color with a complex bouquet of coffee and vanilla carrying subtle notes of exotic wood, Cantemerle is an elegant wine showing style and breeding. There is no finer expression of vintage character and Haut-Médoc terroir, where sandy and stony soils are light, warm and free-draining. This is expressed through well-incorporated tannins and a happy marriage of softness and vivacity on the finish. Very ripe Merlot and aged Cabernets—the Médoc’s pride—also make a welcome contribution.

Winemaker's Notes

An enticing nose of great delicacy, followed by an inviting, extremely charming
palate. Quite early drinking and as with so many 2000s, wonderfully appealing.
Classic, elegant Claret at a highly attractive price. Drinking from 2008-2016.

    Very complex, ripe, fine & fragrant. Earthy, mushroom nose with a touch of acidity. The tannins activate the salivary glands.
