(RP=91) An elegant, successful 2011, Cantemerle has produced a finesse-styled wine with a dense ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of flowers, mulberries, raspberries and blueberries. With dramatic quality and purity, this medium-bodied effort possesses sweet tannins and a texture that builds incrementally. A lighter-styled, but beautifully crafted, well done 2011, it can be enjoyed over the next 10-15 years. (WS=87-90) Supple and nicely focused, with currant, plum and cherry notes judiciously toasted, which lets a pretty floral note chime on the finish. (AG=87) Inky purple. Aromas of dark berries, spices, violet and loam, with a cool herbal element. Bright and juicy on the palate, showing modest sweetness and nuance but good life to its dark fruit flavors. Finishes with slightly edgy acidity and tight tannins.
