Critic Notes

François Mitjavile is not afraid of ripeness in his wines - an effect exaggerated by the circus-like lay of the land - and this is correspondingly soft, spicy and jammy. The tannins are finely wrought here, the oak is savoury-sweet, the alcohol warming on the palate. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2026

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Roc de Cambes has very pure notes of cassis, blackberries and plums with nuances of cigar box, anise and lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate offers generous fruit, great concentration and freshness with firm, grainy tannins and an herbal lift on the finish. Apr 2018, www.robertparker.com

Score: 92-/100Lisa Perrotti-Brown

Iron, smoke and tobacco wrap around a core of expressive red-fleshed fruit in the 2015 Roc de Cambes. Powerful and explosive, with a real sense of energy, the 2015 packs a serious punch. There is no shortage of intensity or richness here, but the Roc de Cambes is not quite as racy or unctuous as the Domaine des Cambes. The 20% Cabernet Franc helps keep a measure of freshness.

Very intense and rich. Great spice and softness. Totally unlike anything else. Perfumed but with such gorgeous mastery of tannins. What a contrast to the tenseness of the Pavie stable. Already gorgeous! Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2020-2026

The 2015 Roc des Cambes has an incredibly pure bouquet that is as much Côtes de Nuits as Côtes de Bourg! Wonderful cassis mixed with dark cherries and a touch of bergamot. The palate is very well balanced with hints of fresh date and fig on the entry, a fine bead of acidity here, slightly powdery in texture with impressive balance and tension on the finish. François Mitjavile's wine always benefits from 3-4 years in bottle, although I would not begrudge anyone succumbing to temptation earlier. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2019-2032
