This isn't the best advertisement for Cantemerle, nor for 2004. It's a bit plain, old-fashioned in the worst sense, not green/weedy but more metallic and a bit unclean.

It's hard to believe that this will eventually turn into something classic as many previous Cantemerle.

I hope that it was a bad bottle, but it was clearly better than the previous corked bottle.

13% ABV. Sealed with cork.

Enjoyable but it seemed a little greener this time. Definitely not showing as well as the last few bottles I've had. I'm hoping this was caused by the Riesling we had earlier.

Perfectly mature Bordeaux. Subdued fruit, tobacco, touch mint, fresh acidity, resolved tannins. Nice hint green pepper. Silky mouth feel. Wonderful eucalyptus notes.

Very nice.

No decant; tight nose, expanded a bit with air to reveal barn, herbs; good structure, vigorous tannins and fruit with long 30 sec finish; touch of bacon, minerals, black cherries (held up next day showing complexity); 17.5

Mellow, round with full juicy fruit, fine resolved tannins, earth, leather. Drinking well. A nice basic well aged Bdx.

Every bottle I've opened has been better than the last. This one was just great. Dusty yet round. Full bodied but not a fruit bomb. Time has done wonders to this wine.

Slightly better than previous bottles, this has developed into a charming wine, if somewhat one-dimensional, so possibly worth a punt at the right price.

The bottle was in-neck. Cabernet based nose with an extreme weak palate. Seems some problems with this bottle. NR

Westchester Wine School - Premium Bordeaux Tasting (Bar Lees, Mamaroneck, NY): Drank at WWS season-ending tasting, and I supplied this bottle. Decanted for 2 hrs prior to drinking, & there was a bit of sediment. Dark purplish in glass, no overt signs of age in the glass. Fairly generous nose showing a bit of barnyard funk at first, but that blew off leaving some fruit, coffee and notes of cedar. Medium bodied, still very good fruit level with fairly vibrant acidity. Good amounts of cigar box, tobacco, barnyard and earth. Drank opposite a wonderful 1998 Monbousquet which overshadowed this wine somewhat, but this is definitely a very nice wine, if not particularly complext or thought-provoking, that is still drinking quite well.

Ultra-classic Bordeaux, and tonight's bottle (.375) is really packed in. Huge but unresolved tobacco, iron, and lead pencil nose, not showing much fruit but you know it's there. If the finish was just a wee bit longer-maybe in time-I'd give it a 93. I CANNOT believe the Bordelais have abandoned this style.

Library Tasting with Geoff Kelly - 2005 Bordeaux (Regional Wines and Spirits, Wellington, New Zealand): Dumb nose. Lean and slightly dilute in the mouth. This feels too high in acid. Whilst this wine is more concentrated that the 200r Potensac, for the sake of comparison, it comes across as less attractive.

Good nose of black currant, plum, vanilla and hints of earth. Very youthful on the tongue with a long finish. Like where this wine is right now. Should only get better.

Tuesday Night Double Blind $80+ (Bin 75): Dark dense core with thin garnet rim; lead pencil, black currant, plum, young Bordeaux; plummy on the palate with blackberry, black currant, dense fruit, layers, dark and brooding, green pepper, bitter cocoa; good, needs time.

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!
