Chateau Cantemerle – Haut-Medoc
This stunning vintage has been somewhat overshadowed by the quality of the two preceding years, but is now being discovered for its flattering character. With its beautiful deep color and discreet spicy aromas, this wine shows a stunning youth, firmness and complexity. Decanting before service will reward one with fine aromas of coffee, cedar and black currant which will allow it to perfectly accompany an omelette with wild mushrooms or a variety of French cheeses. However there’s no rush: this wine will continue to age well in a good cellar.
