2003 Château Cantemerle

Community Tasting Note


Saturday, October 28, 2006 - A sweet and a little toffeeish nose, but it is still very typical, old style Bordeaux albeit very ripe. There are savoury herbal notes, cedar and red toned fruit and even the tiniest hint of dung (yum!). The palate is sweetly fruity, has pretty high acidity for the year, i.e. is at a level I would normally expect from Bordeaux. There is also a touch of bitterness to it which I like very much as it brings in more freshness, but I can see that the bitter edge might not endear this to many people! This is very much to my taste.
