Tasting notes The Wine Advocate 90 points
Deep garnet colored, the 2010 Cantemerle gives up notes of cassis, baked plums and fragrant earth with hints of pencil shavings and bay leaves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of bright, juicy fruit with a lively backbone and a bit of chew to the finish.

The 2010 vintage brought out all the best in Cantemerle’s terroir. A deep color sets the tone for this wine: complex, concentrated and long in the mouth, with a finish which just doesn’t finish, leaving an impression of great aromatic richness. The wine’s dense structure is masterfully controlled, showing elegance without heaviness, and a liveliness highlighting its freshness. Swirling brings the wine alive in the glass, with aromas of spice, tobacco, black currant and plums. This is Cantemerle’s natural
character, with the added richness

grapes: 52% Cabernet Sauvignon - 35% Merlot - 5% Petit Verdot - 8% Cabernet Franc

This makes Cantemerle an ideal choice for the modern wine drinker who likes fresh tannins. However, it can also age extremely well. Fine, old vintages have impeccable class, with incomparable flavours of sheer elegance. Cantemerle therefore belongs to that rare category of the world's wines which can not only age, but also improve over several decades.
