Chateau Cantemerle 2011
The finesse and complexity of a great Medoc terroir is evident in this wine, which should be decanted an hour before serving due to its very young age. First impressions are based on a deep color, delicate structure, and supple tannins; its lightly wooded bouquet merely hints at the full range of aromatic expression to come. The style avoids simple excess, preferring to highlight a terroir known for producing well-knit, delicate, and richly elegant wines of good breed—in short, a classic Mrdoc. Enjoy with poultry or veal roast beginning in 2015.
47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 7% Cabernet Franc.
