CHATEAU CANTEMERLE - 2003
A 5th Growth Bordeaux from Haut Medoc with 12.5% alcohol.
Garnet color with aromas and flavors of barnyard and bittersweet chocolate upfront followed by toast, black currant, grape jelly, blueberry and blackberry. Strong plum notes pop on the finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
This is an excellent Bordeaux for around $20 - $25. Tons of complexity, ever evolving in the glass, big smells, vibrant fruit and Old World panache as well. Thumbs up!
