2010 Chateau Cantemerle - Haut-Medoc
"This is one of my favorite Bordeaux's. The 2010 vintage was an exceptional year, the wine is always a great value, and there's plenty of ripe fruit--not just big tannins. I will probably decant mine for about a half an hour before serving at Thanksgiving so it really opens up. An elegant Bordeaux isn't exactly your average Thanksgiving pick, that's for sure!" -Gary Marcaletti, SFWTC
Wine Advocate: 94+ Points
"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." -Robert Parker
