2000 Château Cantemerle

Community Tasting Note

Does not like this wine:

85 Points

Saturday, February 2, 2013 - Dear friends,
I bought six bottles when it came out and trusted the #1 wine magazine on opinion and window to drink. I stored it in a contolled cellar. I read the notes on this website and opened 1/2 hour b4 and was optimistic for exceeding the average rating of 89. We drank out of bordeaux reidel glases and i kept thinking it might get better and my wife barely drank a glass with a great meal of stuffed cornish hens. If i drank this at a party, i would dump it, but i waited over a decade for it and dammit, i was going to drink it. By the end of the bottle, i mixed with jug wine to palate it. Extremely disappointed and hope the other bottles i have are better.
