"Château Cantemerle is a medium-bodied, light, fresh, elegantly styled, charming Bordeaux wine that drinks well young and is usually best enjoyed during the first two decades of life, even in the best vintages. Cantemerle remains one of the top values among the Classified Growths. It’s an estate you can count on to produce elegant, character-driven wines at a fair price."

93 Wow. This really shows wonderful depth and complexity on the nose with blueberries, fresh flowers and hints of stones. It's full-bodied, with ultra-refined tannins and a long, long finish. Gets better and better with age: gorgeous now but will improve for many years to come. Excellent.
