2002 Chateau Cantemerle Haut-Medoc

Wine Description

Medium saturated ruby-red. Aromas of raspberry, espresso, cocoa powder and sexy oak spices. Sweet on entry, then supple in the middle, with an edge of acidity. Finishes with good breadth, tongue-dusting tannins and notes of black fruits and mint.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) Attractively aromatic, fruit, charm and spice from the Merlot, elegant firmness from the Cabernet and overall finesse and balance.

    (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.
