K&L Notes

50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot. At Joanne: Boysenberry nose with spice. Full bodied. Harmonious. Good sweet finish. Lovely wine; better than 2005. At UGC: Elegant style. Complete and round. At the property: Cinnamon spice and some clove hints. Very fine aromas that lead to the palate. Long and deep on palate. High acid, delicious. A sure "sleeper of the vintage" and much better than their 2005! *1/2 Ralph Sands: Wow! Very special wine made here in 2006, surely the best in modern times. Spicy ripe fruit with fine middle richness, sweetness and mouthfeel. Alex Brisoux: Sweet, spicy red fruit, cocao/tobacco undertone, good structure, elegant long finish, the best young Cantemerle I've ever tasted. And on 01/23/09: As good as it gets for the price. Rich and full, lingering finish.

    This wine is one of the better 2006s and it qualifies as a "sleeper" of the vintage. Cinnamon spice and some clove hints. Long and deep on palate. and much better than their 2005! This vintage marked the BIG turnaround at Cantemerle where Philippe Dambrine took this beautiful property into the forefront of value Bordeaux. This wine still has plenty of structure for more ageing, but decant it and enjoy.
