Wine Description

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 1999 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.
