2002 Château Cantemerle

Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend more

Mmmh, quite surprising - thought it was dead, but no.

Very nice red-brown color like I expected.
Ripe fruit, barrique, prunes, tobacco - herbs and dust with a bit of pencil. Very nice nose.

On the palate it is quite acid - strong acidity, still with quite a few tannins drying out the mouth. Have to drink with food.

But as I said - quite surprised about this wine - still alive and kicking!

Pop and pour. Way better than first bottle drank 2 yaers ago. Rather full body, full integrated tannins and a good acidity than bring a great balance.
I really think it's at its peak but you can hold it for another 5+ years. Personally i will start to drink my others bottles.

Surprisingly good.

Holding off on rating. This still needs time to fully balance and come together. Oak still too prominent.

just outside margaux, but nose shows more like pauillac. dark & brooding, mid palate is on the lean side, but excellent aromatics, downgrade score due to price.

Medium-dark ruby. Expressive nose of read and black fruit with some chocolate and a good dose of spices, vanilla and oak. On the palate this wine has a lot of volume and structure for this price class. Tannins are soft but as with all 2010 I would really wait for 8-10 years before starting to drink this, not only will the structure soften but also more aromas will develop. Good QPR here.

(Decanter's Bordeaux '05, '09, '10 tasting) :: Quite closed, tight and compact, but excellent structure and balance, showing a nice complexity of earth and leathery notes already. Tannins are still huge and need several years to fully integrate, I think. A lot of potential here, but not easy to judge given how tight, closed and tannic it is.

(Decanter's Bordeaux '05, '09, '10 tasting) :: More open / lifted than the 2010 at this stage, showing classic lines of cassis, a touch of caramel and tobacco leaf. Still quite tight and very young, but has opened considerably since I last tried it a few years ago, where it was completely shut down.

(Decanter's Bordeaux '05, '09, '10 tasting) :: Really starting to blossom. A bit shy perhaps (esp for the vintage), but a fine balance of cassis, red fruits, leather, pepper and earth notes. A well structured, complete palate, and plenty of stuffing left.

Tyvärr sista flaskan i lådan. Denna årgång av Cantemerle har verkligen utvecklats fantastiskt under åren. Det känns som att jag tajmat denna sista flaska med vinets peak.
Underbar klassisk Bordeaux med mogen cassis, stall, läder och väldigt fin doft av svampskog. Detta kan utan vidare mäta sig med viner som kostar både det dubbla och tredubbla. Väldigt bra balans och struktur. Är lite mer robust än elegant men är ett väldigt gott vin med långt och underbart slut.

Dark fruits, tobacco, and a savoury earthiness. Fully mature and drinking well with supple, medium weight flavours. Margaux wines turned out very well in '83, and this property is very close to Margaux.

This one has held up well for an inexpensive Bordeaux. The fruit was still solid and the tannins soft and blended.

Young, but promising. Lots of cassis, some oak, good length, wait 3-5 years to settle, Will Rhen be great!

What a gorgeous, complex nose, earthy and mineral, with truffles, graphite, flowers and this intriguing lingering ginger feel. Took a few hours to open up into a red fruit, toffee, mineral palate, so elegant and showing good depth on the spiced and again ginger finish. Complex and elegant, yet still a bit restrained by its bitter tannins. Going somewhere beautiful in a couple of years. 93-95

A beautiful mature Bordeaux. This wine has always done it for me. Still holding its ruby color. Deep nose of dark berries, wet earth and smoke. The fruit is holding up well yet the palate is solidly tertiary. There is a seriousness here that points to a wine with higher pedigree. Probably good to drink this over the next few years. (92)

PnP w/30 min decant. Minor sediments. Beautiful purple color no hint of brown edge/bricking. Some funk upon opening. Fully mature w/usual traits of an older wine. Must, tobacco, tar, slight cork, wet forest/paper, leather, dark but still decent fruit. Held up well considering. Nothing off. Good example of aged Claret. $36

Decanted and served blind. Not much on the nose, but this was great when tasted. Young, velvety, big, sizable tannins, and lots of potential were my notes. I'd love to try this again in five years. Enjoyable and tasty. 92/93

pnp. passed thru vinturi to open it up. cork perfect. color opaque garnet with crimson edges. nose shows dark dark fruits, almost meaty aroma with pencil shavings. swishing shows considerable structure, mostly tannin but good acid, and a dense fairly weighty midpalate and finish that goes on and on. sipping shows off the balance, with spicy plum and dark berry fruits in wonderful harmony with the structure. great mouthfeel and lengthy luscious finish.
left 1/4 bottle open on counter and 2 days later going strong. didn't really soften much at all.

From a half bottle.
Bright vibrant wine with good acidity, fresh fruits and resolved tannins.
Not terribly complex but certainly enjoyable
