1985 Château Cantemerle

Community Tasting Note


87 Points

Sunday, December 28, 2008 - The positive score reflects an excellent effort here. The wine has a lovely nose, deep to the core with mature cabernet fruit and cedary notes. On the palate, the acidity comes through and it's lean, but with enough to it to be nicely drinkable. But this is RIGHT on the tip of the cliff and may have a relatively rapid decline. Also, I feel positive about this because it came from the same lot as an unpleasant Lascombes 81 whose cork fell into the bottle.
