Chateau Cantemerle " Les Alles De Cantemerle " Haut-Medoc 2005

The wine’s deep, dark color immediately displays its youthand potential. The nose, while still somewhat reserved, nevertheless shows hints of spices and blackcurrant romas which will become more pronounced with time. On the palate the attack is both ample and firm: very ripe tannins immediately cover the mouth, and pure, clean fruit aromas create an impression of great opulence. An underlying liveliness delivers a fresh and firm finish. This wine is clearly a product of the 2005 vintage, the finest that Bordeaux has seen in a very long time, and a distinguished elegance displays the influence of its terrior. Those who prefer young wines will find great pleasure here, especially if decanting is done one hour before service; however, an additional two or three years of further aging will bring out a fuller expression of the wine’s charm and subtlety.


This second wine comes mainly from the cheau’s young vines, and is made like its elder brother. Les Alls de Cantemerle has the same personality as the grand vin,
but a shorter ageing potential. As it ages more quickly, Les Alls de Cantemerle is generally ready to be consumed within several years of the vintage.
