K&L Notes

88-90 points Neal Martin's Wine Journal: "The Cantemerle has a fine bouquet that demonstrates clarity and lift – graphite infused black fruit, expressive Cabernet fruit to the fore. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, edge tannins and a lovely citric seam that cuts through the mocha-tinged fruit. The oak feels a little heavy-handed at this stage, but it should integrated well and become a fine Cantemerle for the vintage." (05/2013)

    It is showing very elegant aromatics of cassis, cigar box, crushed stones and leather. On the palate, its sweet dark fruit reveals itself with its dark cherries, cassis, a touch of wood smoke and leather. The tannins are quite rounded and in perfect tune with the acidity. It is a delicious wine and one of my favorites for its quality/price. 56% Cabernet Sauvignon - 36% Merlot - 6% Petit Verdot - 2% Cabernet Franc.

    Aromas of currants and berries with hints of chocolate. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. Very fine. Cantermerle delivers in 2012. Better to drink in 2016.
    Drink from 2016 to 2025
