The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry and blueberry notes, it exhibits a sort of cool-climate character. Broad, rich and intense on the palate, the wine has plenty of tannins, but they are sweet and well-integrated. Everything is delicately entwined into this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, dense purple wine, which shows stunning character and a prodigious potential for development. This is definitely a major sleeper of the vintage and even better than I thought from barrel. 94+ - Robert Parker

Layered and rich with lots of blueberry character and ripe velvety tannins. Lovely texture. Best wine from here in years.

Dominated by its acidity the tannins firm without being too dry finely integrated into the rich structure. A fine finish of licorice and black plum skins.

Offers a sappy feel, with deliciously pure notes of kirsch and blackberry preserves. Lightly toasted spice and singed anise accents lead to the long, graphite-fueled finish. Should age gracefully.

Musky aromas of black cherry, blueberry, espresso, menthol and licorice, lifted by a cool floral element. Densely packed and savory, displaying sappy energy to its intense dark berry flavors. With a serious structure and no easy sweetness today, this vibrant wine will need a good five to seven years in the cellar and should last well. This may eventually merit an even higher score. 90+

Big and raw and blustering. Quite a bruiser! Very sweet and lively and classy with marked mulberry fruit. Very powerful with masses of tannins hidden away underneath too. Well-integrated nose with both concentration and vivacity. Nicely balanced and behaved even without real nerve. Just a little stolid on the finish. Tasted both open and blind.
