    (Chateau Cantemerle Haut-Médoc) Rather sweet and warm character to the fruit here, with a roasted herb note to it as well. A touch baked and raisiny, with little nuances of balsamic. The palate has a stony quality to it, it has some flesh but is certainly not generous, and there is a nice core of ripe tannins. The fruit quality here is a little chalky, although still with that very warm feel to it. Nice substance though, and so I will remain optimistic.

    (Château Cantemerle) Dark red violet color; cedar and herbal nose; tight, if not pinched, tart cassis palate, a little disjointed; short medium finish (60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Petit Verdot)

    (Chateau Cantemerle Haut-Médoc) CS 50%, M 40%, CF 5%, PV 5%. This wine has a vibrant hue, although there isn't the intensity displayed by many of the other wines. There is a spicy, meaty nose, showing attractive black fruits with a fresh, lifted style. Rather gentle on the palate, rounded, soft and approachable. This doesn't have the complex interest to be found elsewhere, and it has less depth than I would like. It's also a little short. But it will make very acceptable short-term drinking one day.
