2010/2009 Chateau Cantemerle 5eme, Haut-Medoc (RP 94 / 93=91pts) 2010/2009 Chateau Cantemerle 5eme, Haut-Medoc (RP 94 / 93=91pts)

Description

A wonderful opportunity to try a mag 2010 (see RP glowing report) against a bottle of the 2009 from two outstanding vintages.

The wines were brought directly from a wine merchant they have been stored in a temp controlled environment and the case opened recently.

A reasonable reserve of £100 has been set given their perfect condition and provenance.



2010
94+Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013

The wine needs a good 7-10 years of cellaring and should keep for 30 more years, but this is the finest Cantemerle I have encountered in my professional career of tasting young vintages (dating back 34 years now). Stunningly deep ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of spring flowers intermixed with perfumed raspberry and blueberry notes, it exhibits a sort of cool-climate character. Broad, rich and intense on the palate, the wine has plenty of tannins, but they are sweet and well-integrated. Everything is delicately entwined into this beautiful, medium to full-bodied, dense purple wine, which shows stunning character and a prodigious potential for development. This is definitely a major sleeper of the vintage and even better than I thought from barrel. Drink 2020-2050.

With its 2010, this classified growth located in the southern end of the Medoc may well have made a modern-day version of their legendary 1949.

2009

94/92
Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (188), April 2010
This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with the Cabernet dominating, looks to be the best they have ever produced, even eclipsing the 2005. Dense purple in color, with extraordinarily elegant floral notes intermixed with raspberry, black currant, cherry, and spice box, it is medium to full-bodied, not massive, but again, very seamless, with beautiful precision, sweet tannins, and an endearing fleshiness and depth of flavor that are neither heavy nor fatiguing. This wine will be relatively approachable in 3-5 years and drink well for 25-30. (Tasted two times.) Drink 2010-2040.

Robert Parker added an asterisk to this wine score to signify that it is a wine he considers has the finest potential of all the offerings he has ever tasted from this estate in nearly 32 years of barrel tasting samples in Bordeaux.
