Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) Soft and silky on the palate with an almost Right Bank feel, the 2009 Ch. Cantemerle is full if generous, mulberry fruit and supple tannins. The fruit is well balanced by the refreshing acidity, leading to a crisp, clean finish.

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.

    Drop, geroosterde kruiden, zoete kersen en bloemen. Licht mondgevoel, harmonieus, delicaat en finesse.

    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.
