Good full ruby. Inky aromas of crushed black fruits, violet and mint. Lush, broad and creamy, in a softer, modern style. A fairly lush, large-scaled wine, finishing with dusty, building tannins. This is actually rather atypical for a wine from this chateau, as it includes a relatively high 60% cabernet sauvignon content (the merlot here was reportedly less successful), and yet the overall impression is one of soft fruit.

Perfumed yet still cedary black fruit. Quite leafy. Dry, powdery tannins but not hard like some. Fresh, minerally, lightish. (JH) 2011-15 Rating: 15.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Apr 2008)
Château Cambon la Pelouse
One of the longest-standing producers with exports to England dating back to the end of the 17th Century, the 38 hectare Château Cambon La Pelouse contributed substantially in the past to building the reputation in France and abroad of Médoc wines. The 35 hectare estate is on the outskirts of Macau and counts the Margaux estates of Giscours and Cantemerle as neighbours. With an average annual production of 250,000 bottles, the estate is planted 52% Merlot, 44% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot to a vine density of 7,000 vines per hectare with an average age of 30 years for the vines. The terroir is composed of sandy gravels which provides effective drainage. This ensures a consistent production of elegant medium-bodied wines which have been praised by Robert Parker as “one of my favorite estates from the southern part of the Medoc”.
