I also own 2009 and a bottle a couple of years back wasn’t ready. Keen to hear reports!In the error of my ways, I very rarely drink Bordeaux but I recently bought bottles of 2009 and 2014 Cantemerle from TWS. I wondered what others thought about opening either vintage soon and whether to decant a certain length of time ahead of drinking them?
More pleasure to be got from the 09 imho.Thank you everyone for the advice. I might try one of them this weekend.
David, did you get round to opening the 2009?
I had thought that the 2014 might be approachable based on drinking and enjoying the lovely 2014 Jaugueyron Haut-Médoc but I expect that and the Cantemerle might be quite different in profile.
