1988 Cantemerle

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 85.5 points



The 1988 Cantemerle possesses adequate hard, dry tannins, but unlike many Medocs, there is sufficient fruit. The classy bouquet of black fruits, minerals, and spices is hard to resist. Medium-bodied and elegant, with plummy, mineral, and herb flavors, this stylish wine should be at its best between now and the end of the century. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 85



Smells attractive, with spicy oak and currant aromas, and is rich and soft on the palate, with smooth tannins and a subtle aftertaste. Should be ready to drink now to 1997. 8,000 cases made. – Wine Spectator 1991
