Château Cantemerle Haut-Médoc Red Bordeaux Blend 2005 (375ml)

$24.99

...This is a great 2005. The Cantemerle is developing a very attractive, lifted nose with more cedar and crushed stone, hints of freshly rolled tobacco and briary. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, gentle grip, leading to a foursquare but precise finish that does not dare put a foot wrong... Classic Bordeaux. eRobertParker.com (Neal Martin)

Didn't bring a red as we weren't planning on drink more than a btl, and that Leroy Monty did the trick, but our palates got hungry for some red, so looked at the half btl list(needed to drive back to SF) and chose this, great vintage and a solid producer. This is in a beautiful place right now, plenty of room for improvement, but complemented dinner just right.

This is singing, right now. I can't recall the last time a whole table gushed over a bottle of non-first growth Bordeaux.

The "forgotten fifth growth." Real "steak wine." Minerally, balanced tannin and acid. Solid

Keeping getting distracted every few months and open an 05 Bordeaux. Not ready, this wine was undrinkable the first night. There was so much oak and wood tannin. 18 hours later the texture relaxed and it opened a bit. 28 hours later the oak integrated somewhat...not a pleasant experience, this wine needs years...if ever

Plenty of time in the bottle but still somewhat of a rowdy teenager. Deep red, bordering on purple in colour, relatively savoury in flavour with dark fruits, minerals and a liquorice undertone. There’s still quite a bit of tannin and acidity but neither are overpowering. The issue is that all of the above features have not yet fully blended together and although the finish is restrained it is also a bit rough around the edges. I think this will smooth out over time and there are still many years in this.
