Reviews for 2008 Cantenac Brown Bordeaux Blend

Wine Enthusiast - Wine Enthusiast, April 2011
This château is progressing well in raising its quality as this big, chunky wine shows. The fruit has a solid texture, with great black swirls of dark berry and smoky flavors in a tannic cloak.

Deep red-ruby. Initially reticent but deep nose hints at blueberry juice blackberry liqueur and roasted smoky plum. Creamy and sweet on entry with black fruit and mineral flavors given a firm edge by licorice and herbs... Deep red-ruby. Initially reticent but deep nose hints at blueberry juice blackberry liqueur and roasted smoky plum. Creamy and sweet on entry with black fruit and mineral flavors given a firm edge by licorice and herbs and strong acidity.

A beautiful effort the medium to full-bodied 2008 demonstrates the resurgence in quality being enjoyed by this long-time Margaux underachiever. Perfumed aromas of licorice spring flowers black currants and subtle oak are followed by a soft round opulent sexy generous savory wine revealing no hard edges. Enjoy this pure seductive 2008 over the next 12-15 years.

17/20 Very light bodied and ethereal. Almost Lafite-like! Very racy. Not fighting the vintage at all. Well done. Racy – not concentrated but very well balanced.
