Chateau Cantemerle is terrific in 2009
These are the two appellations, alongside Moulis & Listrac [next post], have served up some of Bordeaux most affordable and exciting wines in 2009 – and many are still widely available. There is such joy, fragrance and fruit to be found here and considerable structure beneath. Amongst the crus classes Chateau Cantemerle is outstanding. I didn’t have the opportunity to taste their legendary 1983 at a similar age, but this wine must rank as one of the best efforts ever from this estate.
