The 2006 Cantemerle was the "surprise package" of the blind tasting at Farr Vintners' horizontal. It has a conservative nose with rosemary and undergrowth scents that open nicely in the glass, but retain a sense of classicism. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, lightly spiced red berry fruit, sage and white pepper, quite persistent on the finish, which feels very pure. What an outstanding 2006 Claret - a Cantemerle that punches well above its weight. Tasted April 2016. (NM)
This is light a tightly wound ball of wool. It’s velvety textured with ripe tannins, plum skin and berry character. Full, long and intense. Just starting to drink well.
40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 44% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 9% Cabernet Franc. Leather, cassis, spice, black fruit. Light tannins are good for drinking now. (RH)
Deep red. Pure aromas of blackberry, violet and licorice, lifted by minty and herbal nuances. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, with spices and a light herbal quality contributing to the impression of lift and definition. Finishes with dusty tannins that seem a bit less gritty than they appeared to be a year ago from barrel. (ST)
Blackberry and sweet tobacco follow through to a medium body, with slightly aggressive tannins and a medium finish. Chewy. Needs time to mellow. (JS)
