Clos Cantenac St-Emilion Grand Cru 2008

Merlot from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 03-Nov-2011
100% Merlot. Dark, purple-hued ruby-red colour with good depth. The bouquet is fine, tight and intense with exotic dark red plum and tobacco-like fruit, along with cedar and spices, and toasty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich, concentrated and densely packed with flavours of spicy dark red plums, revealing layers of tobacco, earth and cedary oak. The tannins are fine-grained and provide excellent structure through the palate line, but allow the fruit +/o feature. Match with flavoursome slow-cooked red meat dishes over the next 7-10 years. 455 dozen made. 18.5+/20 Nov 2011 RRP $72.95
