With its superbly deep color, the wine has the grand style of an elegant evening gown.
The aromas are equally graceful: partly woody, partly spicy, but still young and far from fully developed.
In the mouth, the wine shows the classic personality of superbly quintessential Cabernets from a great Médoc terroir: exotic wood character with licorice, and pepper flavors, and a touch of red fruit.
The wine’s structure displays reserve and complexity, with a welltempered richness and great length. You can begin to enjoy the
wine’s charm and elegance after decanting one hour before serving. It represents a perfect model of elegance, balance, and the fine flavors typical of Cantemerle’s greatest wines.
