Critic Notes

An elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of flowers, mulberries, raspberries and blueberries. With dramatic quality and purity, this medium-bodied effort possesses sweet tannins and a texture that builds incrementally. A lighter-styled, but beautifully crafted, well done 2011, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. Apr 2014, www.robertparker.com

Score: 91-/100Robert Parker

Pretty blackberry and blueberry character with medium to full body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. jamessuckling.com

Score: 89-90/100James Suckling

Blending 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 43% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot, the wine will be aged in 50% new oak. Earthy, cherry notes, medium bodied with a light, red berry finish. TheWineCellarInsider.com

Score: 88-90/100Jeff Leve

Supple and nicely focused, with currant, plum and cherry notes judiciously toasted, which lets a pretty floral note chime on the finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Score: 87-90/100Wine Spectator

A nice savoury nose leads into a fine elegant palate. Simple and attractive.

Score: 15.5-/20FINE+RARE

Tasted three times, the Cantemerle has a light fish scale nose with crisp dark black fruit and nicely integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, dusty tannins, a core of dusky black fruit and a foursquare, grippy finish that shows fine length. Classic Cantemerle for mid-term drinking. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

Score: 87-89/100Neal Martin

Black core. Black cherry rim. Spicy on the nose, lean and pretty dry on the palate with a sweet vanilla flourish at the end. jancisrobinson.com

Haut-Brion 2009: Double Magnums & Imperials
