    January 20, 2020 - Cantemerle's 2015 is an opaque crimson blend of 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 27% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, aged for 12 months in French oak (40% new). Packed with steeped plum fruit, rosemary, tobacco, exotic spices and graphite, it is a medium-bodied wine with beautifully integrated oak and alcohol (13%). Freshly acidic and silky-textured by virtue of its medium-weight, fine-grained tannins, it has excellent mid-palate density and a lengthy, smooth finish. Cantemerle has done a great job with this vintage. Already very drinkable, this is a charming Bordeaux that should provide pleasure throughout the decade. Drink now-2030.

    December 27, 2019 - From 375ml. Dark fruited plummy nose at first, but starts to shut down a bit after an hour. Palate is all black fruits - plum, blackberry and cassis, with a hint of tar and tobacco on the back end. Texture is ethereal and light, with a touch of woody glossiness, and tannins that start out silky but start to tighten up with air. There's also the sense that the elevated acid is not quite in sync. There's good concentration and unexpectedly lengthy finish that sneaks up on you. Seems like the wine is starting to shut down a bit, but it has all the right components - just needs some time to harmonize. 89 for now, but lots of upside.

    November 21, 2019 - Cabernet Sauvignon 59%, Merlot 27%, Cabernet Franc 6% and Petit Verdot 8%
    Bought in Vinotheque de Bordeaux, Bordeaux city - highly recommend wine store, very wide specter of wines including last vintages, highly friendly staff and excellent service.

    It is pity to drink this wine in such not mature age. Medium body, deep garnet color. Intense but delicate aroma of ripe black fruits, coffee, olives complements by cigar box and flowers. Black currant and plum palate with lingering spicy and juicy finish. Excellent wine. Rich and complex but elegant and harmonious, exceptionally balanced refreshing berries acidity, tannic now and need aeration. Food friendly, tasted with Tomme Montagne cheese. Serve 17º - 21º. Open four/six hours ahead. Drink in four years at least.
