VINTAGE: 2012 WINERY:Chateau cantemerle
COUNTRY: France REGION:Bordeaux
Second wine of 1855 Bordeaux Wine Classification (Fifth Growth) Cantemerle A touch of firmness remains in this still-young wine, a sign of its present quality and future promise. Thus the need for decanting to bring out this substantial wine’s soft, gentle tannins and to promote a pleasant, creamy impression on the palate. The finish is clean and lively, with lingering, atypical notes of coffee. Lacking neither personality or promise, this is better than its status as a second wine suggests.
