Cru Cantemerle Cuvée Prestige Bordeaux Superieur 2009
This cellar-aged Bordeaux offers a mature style at an affordable price.
This cellar-aged Bordeaux is plump and rounded with plum and red fruit character, good concentration of fruit and mouth filling. This classic claret is a good match with roast beef or cheeses.
This Bordeaux is sourced from a small family estate, owned by the Charles Mignon Champagne family, this is the first shipment to the UK. The swines have extended cellaring before being released, so this wine has come direct from the family cellar. It's relatively rare to find aged Bordeaux wine from older vintages available and at these prices, so this is a good opportunity to try and enjoy this style. The wine is of course mature, and has a browned tint to the colour, and a savoury character with a dry finish.
