Cantemerle 2009


Case Format: 12x75cl

Max score: 95.0

Distinguished by a wealth of woody and vanilla notes that are dripping in fruit, Château Cantermerle is a fresh, vibrant wine characterised by crisp tannins. Its soil is laced with silica and gravel eroded from the Pyrenees over thousands of years by the river Garonne – the essence of this sublime, momentous landscape whispers through its distinctive and robust flavour. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (c.68%), Merlot (c.22%), Cabernet Franc (c.5%) and Petit Verdot (c.5%), cultivating in a powerful bouquet of fruit aromas and flavours that provide it with the enviable ability to be enjoyed young. But for those who are prepared to wait, the Château Cantemerle continues to develop graciously with age.



James Suckling

Gorgeous ripe fruit character, with loads of blueberries, blackberries and flowers. Full body, with velvety tannins and a fruity, fresh, grapefruit aftertaste. Really beautiful. Best ever from here. Best after 2018.

Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Readers looking for the more ethereal, elegant side of Bordeaux need search no further than Cantemerle, one of the estates in the very southern end of the Medoc. Dense ruby/purple (nearly opaque), this wine offers up notes of lead pencil shavings, spring flowers, raspberries and black cherries. The wine is ethereal, medium-bodied, and by no means a blockbuster, but long and intellectual. However, the tannins are present, and the wine is certainly capable of putting on weight with time in the bottle. Give it 3-4 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 25+ years.
