The 2016 Cambon la Pelouse has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a nose of cassis, earth and bay leaves with hints of pencil lead. The medium-bodied palate is firm and chewy, finishing with an herbal lift.

This is a delicious, juicy wine, with black fruit tones backed by firm tannins. The structure and the concentration don't take away from the exuberant fruits.

Plush, offering warm cassis and plum sauce flavors lined with toasted vanilla and ganache notes. A flash of cast-iron on the finish keeps this honest. A bit obvious in style but will certainly have fans. Drink now through 2028. 19,167 cases made.

This is very thick and powerful yet remains fresh and clean. Lots of lively acidity. Full-bodied, layered and flavorful. Better than the 2015.

Savoury and appetising nose. Rich and flattering fruity palate. Still very youthful.

Nez fruité, pointe boisée, élevage un peu marqué par le bois, petits amers, tannins encore un peu drus.

Fresh with flesh, the fruit is on the bright side and I really like the earthy, spicy accents. This is a nicely priced wine that will drink well early.

These very deep soils allow efficient drainage and also contribute to the warming of the soil and thus the ripening of the grapes.  The will of the estate is to produce wines of balance, typical of their appellation & representative of the terroir of Southern Médoc.
