Petit Cantenac St-Emilion Grand Cru 2008

Merlot from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 03-Nov-2011
Light ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues and a pale edge. The nose shows savoury earth and spicy, resiny oak aromas quite firm in expression. Medium-full bodied, this is an elegantly proportioned wine with tightly bound, dark savoury plum flavours underlined by firm acidity and tannin grip. There are resin and spice notes adding interest to the fruit sweetness, the wine finishing tight and dry. A blend of 90% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon, this will keep over the next 5-7 years, softening and becoming more harmonious. 208 cases made. 17.5/20 Nov 2011 RRP $47.95
