Château-Cantemerle Haut Medoc 2011

Save $5.00 (12%)

SKU 649185907119


The finesse and complexity of a great Médoc terroir is evident in this wine, which should be decanted an hour before serving due to its very young age. First impressions are based on a deep color, delicate structure and supple tannins; its lightly wooded bouquet merely hints at the full range of aromatic expression to come. The style avoids simple excess, preferring to highlight a terroir known for producing well-knit, delicate and richly elegant wines of good breed-in short, a classic Médoc. Enjoy with poultry or veal roast beginning in 2015.

Wine AdvocateAn elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of flowers, mulberries, raspberries and blueberries. With dramatic quality and purity, this medium-bodied effort possesses sweet tannins and a texture that builds incrementally. A lighter-styled, but beautifully crafted, well done 2011, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years.

Wine SpectatorSupple and nicely focused, with currant, plum and cherry notes judiciously toasted, which lets a pretty floral note chime on the finish.
