2006 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc (1.5L) (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1030687

90 points Robert Parker: "As I indicated last year, quality has improved dramatically at this estate, and the 2006 is a quintessentially elegant Bordeaux displaying a dark ruby/purple color, a lovely bouquet of forest floor, sweet cherries, cranberries, and black currants, medium body, a textured, sweet, tannic mouthfeel, and a long finish. Everything is beautifully pure as well as perfectly balanced in this outstanding effort. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2025. Excellent value.." (02/09) K&L's notes - 50% cabernet sauvignon, 42% merlot, 8% petit verdot. At Joanne-boysenberry nose with spice. Full bodied. Harmonious. Good sweet finish. Lovely wine-better than 2005. At UGC-elegant style. Complete and round. At the property-cinnamon spice and some clove hints. Very fine aromas that lead to the palate. Long and deep on palate. High acid, delicious. A sure "sleeper of the vintage" and much better than their 2005! *1/2 Ralph Sands: Wow! Very special wine made here in 2006, surely the best in modern times. Spicy ripe fruit with fine middle richness, sweetness and mouthfeel. Alex Brisoux: Sweet, spicy red fruit, cocao/tobacco undertone, good structure, elegant long finish, the best young Cantemerle I’ve ever tasted. And on 01/23/09: as good as it gets for the price. Rich and full, lingering finish. Please note - 2006 Bordeaux futures are not in stock, but will arrive between Jan 2009 and Dec 2009. We will contact you for shipping instructions.
