Robert Parker, Jr.s, Wine Advocate:   "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.

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." Feb 2013

Winery:  "The 2010 vintage brought out all the best in Cantemerle's terroir. A deep color sets the tone for this wine: complex, concentrated and long in the mouth, with a finish which just doesn't finish, leaving an impression of great aromatic richness. The wine's dense structure is masterfully controlled, showing elegance without heaviness, and a liveliness highlighting its freshness. Swirling brings the wine alive in the glass, with aromas of spice, tobacco, black currant and plums. This is Cantemerle's natural character, with the added richness a great vintage brings."
