Plum and coffee character follows through to a medium bodied palate, with light tannins and a firm finish. Best after 2003.

Still showing very well indeed, this Cantemerle has developed very gracefully in the bottle. There is a slightly more evolved stoney red fruit touch to the nose and a soft nutty complexity joining the fruit on the palate, but all the different components are still nicely weighted and in balance with a good invigorating spicy quality to the finish.

Always one of the best values in classed growth claret. This has soft cherry fruit flavours, fresh and lively with no obtrusive tannins. Well balanced, stylish and attractive. Tasted again in November 2005 the wine had evolved really well with an attracive spicy nose, medium weight on the body with nicely mature fruit. A fine and typical claret, neither too young nor too old, not too heavy nor too light. We don't understand how Parker could give this such a poor score but the result of that is that this wine is available at a remarkably low price. Drink now and over the next 5 years.

Although classified in the fifth rank, Château Cantemerle is till one of only 61 Médoc Châteaux out of 8,000-odd in Bordeaux whose classification dates way back to 1855, and this wine shows its class, a classically proportioned Médoc claret with liquorice and vanilla oak spice and juicy, supple-textured cassis fruit that's just about ready to drink, although it's still full of running.
