Clear dark-plum color; wonderful lift on nose of bright berry and cigar box; on the palate, however, the flavors were understated, almost thin, although with a clean taste; day 2, fuller, rounder with smooth tannic blackcurrant, but showing signs of oxidization (always a risk with the second day tasting). A light wine from a light vintage.

(Chateau Cantemerle Haut-Médoc) Sweet black cherry and plum on the nose here, a very dark style of fruit, but with freshness. Nice harmony on the palate, good substance but well judged, with a tannic core and good acidity. There is a slightly bitter character to the fruit, which is very firm with good substance. A good Cantemerle here I think.
