Bordeaux 2011 Vintage revisited?

#1 Post by John Telford » June 30th, 2020, 12:01 pm

Decided on a whim to open a bottle of Cantemerle 2011 from the cellar. No real expectations. Boy it was terrific! Ok, not terrific but vastly exceeded expectations and certainly not what i would expect given the VINTAGE. I found this worth posting as I do drink a lot of Cantemerle across vintages so a good one for me to calibrate. BUT MY QUESTION IS, Has anyone revisited the 2011 vintage. Has anyone had a similar experience.

I have enjoyed most of a case of Angludet, the vintage has a reputation for being austere, but this has been consistently delicious. A few bottles of Chasse-Spleen have also been opened, they were not so great up to a year or so back, but have been recently been good.

From my limited experience, the vintage is opening up nicely and is probably worth a punt.
