WINEMAKER NOTES : The 2010 vintage brought out all the best in Cantemerle’sterroir. A deep color sets the tone for this wine: complex,concentrated and long in the mouth, with a finish whichjust doesn’t finish, leaving an impression of great aromaticrichness. The wine’s dense structure is masterfully controlled, showing elegance without heaviness, and a liveliness highlighting itsfreshness. Swirling brings the wine alive in the glass, witharomas of spice, tobacco, black currant and plums. Thisis Cantemerle’s natural character, with the added richness a great vintage brings.

JAMES SUCKLING Wine Critic (93-94) : A wine with blueberry and mineral aromas follows through to a full body, with fine tannins and a juicy finish. Best for years from here. Needs at least three years of bottle age to soften. Could be better than 2009 in the long run.

ROBERT PARKER (94 +): 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. 94+ Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (205), March 2013.
