Average critic rating : 89.5 points



François Mitjavile insists that the 2015 Domaine des Cambes is not a second wine. Fair enough. Unctuous, racy and exotic, the 2015 offers up a compelling mélange of crème de cassis and black cherry fruit. Domaine des Cambes is made predominantly from Merlot and a dollop of Cabernet Franc grown on the lower slopes of the property, exactly where the ripeness of the vintage is most accentuated. Today the volatile acidity is a bit pronounced and the wine needs time to come together, but it is full of personality and super-distinctive. What else is new? Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com



The 2015 Domaine de Cambes, from François Mitjavile of Tertre Rôteboeuf, has an extremely pure bouquet: vibrant, almost shimmering red and black fruit with superb tension, a touch of rose petal in the background. The palate is soft and rounded on the entry, a touch of sea salt on the tip of the tongue, moderate weight in the mouth with pencil lead notes infusing the black fruit towards the sedate finish. I can imagine this drinking after 2-3 years, but as a recent vertical proved, Domaine de Cambes has a propensity to give a decade's worth of drinking pleasure, so don't be afraid of laying this down.

From the stony stretch next to the Gironde below Roc de Cambes vineyard. Rich and round. Quite unlike any other AOC Bordeaux. Very fine tannins. Hint of game. Black fruits too. GV Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2019-2025
