Family-owned and -operated, Château Haut-Canteloup has been producing wines for four generations. This offers rich fruit aromas, with plum and blueberry most noticeable. Nice wood and leather notes fill out the nose. The palate is dry, fresh and chewy, with medium tannins. A big and ripe wine with plenty of fruit and a very nice length. A wine that will reward 2-4 years in the cellar, but can be enjoyed tonight with grilled lamb with mint jelly. (VINTAGES panel, June 2011)-- 86
