Cantemerle 2011 Revisited

Deep ruby; tight garnet rim. Like the terroir, the wine is classic in its deep ruby colour and elegant bouquet, combining mixed black fruit, sweet spices and pepper. Solid and tastes harmonious with seven years of bottle ageing—medium finish, delicate palate, stuffed, structured. Excellent value. No degradation in quality; even more complexities. A balanced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (47%) and Merlot, with a slight addition of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Scores are consistent.

91 points, James Suckling. Aromas of currants and berries with hints of chocolate. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a flavorful finish. Very fine. Cantermerle delivered in 2011. (2/2014). Edited.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate An elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple colour and 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 can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. (RP) (4/2014) Edited.
