Chateau Cantemerle 2007

89 points

Haut-Medoc (Macau). 13%

Impressive for the vintage. Very savoury but offset by some warm (not sweet or estery, high toast?) oak.

As to be expected for the vintage this lacks concentration and fruit sweetness but it isn’t raw and green. That said, I wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes quite a mean savoury wine until it reaches a more relaxed complex old age. I do expect it will last 10 years plus.

If 2007 hadn’t been so highly priced no one would complain about wines like this.
