A bit too fluffy nose compared to what I expected. Nice cab sauv flavors. Quite ready for beeing such a young Bordeaux.

K&L Bordeaux Tasting (K&L Hollywood): Very different from the 2006, but also basically a pop and pour. Young on the nose showing a fair amount of vanilla/dark fruit and a hint of graphite. Shows more fruit on the palate than the 2006. Good medium acidity, but showing less tannin at first...that quickly changed and there is serious tannin on the finish.

K&L Bordeaux Tasting (K&L Hollywood): This was basically a pop and pour. Nice nose showing lots of earth, some oak spice and leather. Less nice on the palate with some sharpness, but still a fair amount of dark red fruit and still showing a significant amount of tannin.

Tasted at The Sampler. Soft. Cedar, cigar boxes. Hint of fruit. Not yet dried out. Old Bordeaux as it should be.

Subtle, composed. As many have mentioned a pleasant well-judged green streak adds to what is a fairly light bodied wine. Decanting really adds flesh and aroma. Good value and a good drink.

Still very dark purple and quite intense for a fifteen year old...plummy and jammy on the palate, with berry flavors and currant, still a bit of tannin even after a bit of decant time. lovely wine to have with tonight's steak and potatoes!

Eucalyptus on the nose. On the palate, currants, blackberry, and notes of sweet cedar/vanilla and graphite on the medium to long finish, with significant dusty tannins and moderate to good acidity. This is my first 2010 Bordeaux, and it's a winner -- easy to drink despite its obvious youth, and it will probably improve for some years. I have a few more bottles, but I may buy a few more beyond that. Excellent value for the money.

Had some time to soften and it's really nice. A softer version of the 2010. Nice dank.

Nose: hand sanitizer (??). Palate: dank, dark fruit, astringent. Interesting. I still give it 90 points.

Whoa! Nose: toasted bread, pepper, caramel, chocolate. Palate: caramel wagers, vanilla cookies, beefy tannins. Drinking great for such a young wine but it's hinting at a fabulous aging potential as well. I'd love to revisit this in 10, 15, and 20+ years.

Disappointing to me…as I have fond memories of Cantemerle in many vintages. This seems rather flat, dry, nothing exciting it the delivery. I'll hold for another 24 hours to see if anything emerges.

Bordeaux Confidential USA, nose of black cherry fruit, cigar box, allspice, and a hint of saddle leather, more of the same on the palate, one of my favorite wines and a beautiful Chateau to visit, medium body, tasty on the mid palate, easy and fruity drinking, and a long finish.

7/12/2015 - DrinkBordeaux wrote: 90 points

Medium garnet color, lightening of edges. Had a nose indicative of mature Bordeaux, with lots of leather, tobacco, and old library books. Fruit is perhaps fading a bit, with the tertiary elements showing through. Smooth on the palate, but seems reserved. Medium finish. While still drinking well, this is probably on its descent.

Spice driven nose with some forest floor and a brighter floral note lifting above. Palate feels a little awkward though, especially toward the finish where the oak and tannins stick out above the fruit. It's fine to drink but definitely not thrilling or fully balanced tonight.

At home with Lauren and Valerie, made my Italian spiced chicken meatballs. Drank this post a Cote de Provence (Bagnard)

Still drinking well, no real signs of age.Spalsh decanted, drank over 90 minutes. Was drinking well out of the bottle and evolved a bit. Still hanging in there...Dark fruits, floral, pencil shavings on the nose. Palate was dusted dark fruits, lavender, tobacco, dark cherries, currant, cedar. Picked up a forest floor/pine.

Tannins resolved, elegant/classic Bordeaux mouthfeel.

Cantemerle is one of my standbys...not high profile or highly touted Bordeaux, very consistent and great QPR. I don't hesitate to open with casual meals...Drinks well now, has more shelf life but probably doesn't improve much from here

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.
