Very well built. Can stay in the cellar for a while longer but drinks well already given a few hours of air.

Medium bodied, easy drinking, cherry filled charmer with soft, but quite fresh textures and a delicate finish.

First Cantemerle since finishing an 89 a couple of years ago. Lighter body, darker.
Tannins dominate front end, turning juicy ...

Modern Bordeaux notes of dark berry fruit and a degree of vanilla oak but has a traditional structure with a dry, tannic finish. Overall good but at the price one can expect to pay for this you can't say there is value here, or much enjoyment. 88

I rushed this one...

Very classic and well balanced - many things going on each blending into each other. Definite full black-fruit nose and palate, not too heavy, and well rounded by a small percentage of Merlot which seems to go the perfect distance in this wine. A bit of smoke a bit of cocoa, dusty - PERFUMED.

The minor cedary element shakes things up just a little to keep it interesting...i'm only an hour and 1/2 and 3/4 of a bottle in to this. I shall return!!

..i'm glad I did that!

DAY 2 : Far more tertiary - blend of sweet and savoury. Dark black cherry, double salted liquorice, and mint jelly. The TAR content making this almost medicinal before food. Will hold onto this one but unsure of cellaring capacity.

UGC 2016 (Chicago, IL): This is a little darker than I would have expected from Cantemerle, but that's not to say that this is a particularly different style. This is on the light and airy side of things, but with a focus on black fruit, and makes for an excellent easy drinker (and likely at a very agreeable price point too). This has just enough plumpness to keep it from becoming one of those hollow husks. Cantemerle always does so well on these tougher years...

Day 2 (having popped the cork a day before drinking and then putting it back in, left in glass on day 2 for an hour before stating to consume. Reviewed at 3 hour mark)
Nose has lots of barnyard, earth and a little stink.
Palate was somewhat lacking in fruit though it's under the earthiness. I almost called this corked except it got slightly better with air instead of worse.
Can't really recommend this one.

Day 3
another 2 hours into drinking the last 1/2 bottle.
Nose has resolved the funk and stink finally has dissipated. Dark fruit, cassis, some graphite. I like this nose.
Palate is dark with decent complexity and a decently long finely tannic finish.
This wine has opened nicely and I would give it at least another decade in your cellar.
Would buy again.

Wonderful nose, but still not developed enough to show the quality and finesse of the vintage. Needs 5+ years.

Drank two bottles of this in the same week or early Jan. 2016. One was excellent; mature and smooth; in my opinion, ready for drinking. the other had a funk to it on the backend that concerned me; not sure exactly what it was. So, my advice is that if you are holding this wine, check it to see how it is holding up and possibly just plan to enjoy it soon.

I can't note this until I try it again because this didn't taste like a Cantemerle. Quite concentrated, but tasting more of leather than fruit, not a very pleasant experience.

Après 90 minutes en carafe (beaucoup plus ouvert qu'à sa première minute) - au nez, les prunes, les mûres. En bouche, poivré, vert, tanins souples sur une finale moyenne-longue. Pas une cohérence parfaite, mais avec le temps en carafe il gagne en harmonie. Attention - puisqu'après 3h de carafe, le vin décline et une acidité mal dosée s'installe et tue le vin.

BORDEAUX 2005 / Cabernet rules; 4/5/2006-4/10/2006 (Bordeaux): Red cherries on the nose, then black cherries. Some vanilla spice, too. A very nice nose. Palate is medium- to full-bodied and initially quite attractive but perhaps thin on the finish and even some disturbing hints of green. 88-90

Last of a case bought en primeur. Tobacco and blackcurrant with some farmyard notes(which I like and are still present) but still too tannic until it peaked in 2010. plateaued for 6 years and has now started downhill. Liquorice nose with a good complexity and weight of soft fruit and decent length. The bell pepper thing is a slight negative but overall it's hard to believe this is a 20 year old 5th growth. Excellent. large formats would be great now.

Enjoyed. Seemed younger than last bottle. Still very structured and primary. With air, opened nicely. Nice acid. Could use more complexity but very tasty. Red and dark red fruit. Don't get green or herbal notes as with last bottle. Cork was saturated and broke upon opening. But not really dry. Took nearly 3 hrs to fully open. Developed very nice green pepper notes.

This wine needs 2+ hours of decanting. Flavores are not well integrated in the beginning. It improves vastly after that. Great nose with black current, pencil lead, cigar box and hints of floral. Medium body with a good finish.
