Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 87-90

Medium ruby. Blackberry, black cherry, toasty oak and musky espresso on the nose. Sweet, dense and pliant, with a layered texture and considerable early appeal. Lush but nicely delineated. Finishes with ripe tannins and lingering flavors of dark berries and espresso.

This is a nicely textured, plum/ruby-colored 2000 with a moderately intense bouquet of black fruits intermingled with licorice, vanilla, and plums. The wine is pure, elegant, medium-bodied, and stylish. While not a blockbuster, it is delicious, nicely structured, and accessible.

Opulent red. Intense aromas of currants, cigar tobacco and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins and a long finish. Well-made. 42,000 cases made.

Because it was so inviting, like the '89 I drank it too early. It was delicious before 2014, but now it is spectacular, just like the '89 became. Thankfully I still have some to enjoy. What an undervalued wine.

Shows Bordeaux typicity, earthy, harmonious. The only nit I would pick - and this is a small one - is it's a little stingy on the fruit, but I would suspect decanting for two or more hours would correct that. Appropriately priced at $54/bottle.

About This Producer


Chateau Cantemerle is an Haut-Medoc property situated along the Route des Chateaux, just north of Bordeaux. It is classified as a 5eme Cru Classe. The history of the estate goes back to the 14th century, when it belonged to the powerful lords of Blanquefort. It has gone through many changes of ownership since that time. The vineyards include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The wine is widely considered an excellent value that could be upgraded to a Third Growth. The annual production for Cantemerle is 25,000 cases and 12,500 for its second wine, Les Allees des Cantemerle.
