Chateau Cantemerle 2011
The finesse and complexity of a great Médoc terroir is evident in this wine, which should be decanted an hour before serving due to its very young age. First impressions are based on a deep color, delicate structure and supple tannins; its lightly wooded bouquet merely hints at the full range of aromatic expression to come. The style avoids simple excess, preferring to highlight a terroir known for producing well-knit, delicate and richly elegant wines of good breed—in short, a classic Médoc. Enjoy with poultry or veal roast beginning in 2015.
