Chateau Cantemerle Haut Medoc 2012


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

A deep ruby color and aromas lightly highlighting vanilla: this is the first impression. In the mouth the wine is all softness and generosity. This is a classic vintage, soft and supple, full of charm. The palate is predominated by fruit like strawberry and red currant, which evolve to subtle game flavors on the finish. This wine is characterized by an upfront purity and finesse which is already fully satisfying with a cheese soufflé or quiche.

VinousBright red ruby with purple tinges. Sexy, floral aromas of raspberry, pepper, licorice and spices are vibrant and precise. Juicy, intense and very smooth, with wonderful energy and precision to the flavors of blackberry, licorice and spices. Very nicely balanced, persistent wine with fine tannins and very good grip--and no green or harsh edges. This excellent wine gets my nod for Haut-Medoc of the vintage in 2012. In fact, I was so smitten that I went out of my way to taste it three different times, just to be sure.

Wine SpectatorSupple and friendly, with plum and cassis fruit imparting a caressing feel while lightly singed vanilla accents guide the finish.
