品酒筆記:
令人驚歎、極深的紅色,是典型的優質年分代表。香氣有點保守,但仍然清脆,單寧絲滑,給予優雅和順滑的味道,展現酒莊的風土。收結充滿香味,十分仔細的結構伴以新鮮度。十分優質的經典產區,也需要一點耐性,在享用前兩小時醒酒。 (2005)

Tasting Notes:
A superbly brilliant, deeply pronounced red color typical of a great vintage. Its aromas are still a bit reserved, but crisp, silky tannins give the palate an elegance and smoothness characteristic of Cantemerle’s terroir. The finish displays opulent aromas, a very delicate structure and great freshness. A great classic which deserves patience, or two hours’ decanting before serving.  (2005)
