Reviews for 2000 Cantemerle Bordeaux Blend

WS 91
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2003
Opulent red. Intense aromas of currants cigar tobacco and berries. Full-bodied with a solid core of silky tannins and a long finish. Well-made. Best after 2008. 42000 cases made. (JS)

A wine at its peak now, with tobacco, berry and spice character. Some oyster shell as well. Full and decadent. Soft and silky-textured. Drink now. Needs decanting.

Still very deep with the merest hint of ruby and paleness at the rim. Very subtle nose – lures you in but there is no hint of overripeness here, rather a hidden message. Fresh and succulent with hints of tea and toast... Still very deep with the merest hint of ruby and paleness at the rim. Very subtle nose – lures you in but there is no hint of overripeness here, rather a hidden message. Fresh and succulent with hints of tea and toast but very subtle ones. Really quite delicate and beautifully balanced. Neat, medium finish. 17/20
