49% Merlot, 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot. Classic Médoc reaching its peak, plummy fruit still fresh (think damsons and black cherries), now rounded with the polish of a little age, giving a little leathery spice and a dusting of cocoa, nicely concentrated with the slightly firm directness you'd expect from the Medoc. Proper Claret, in other words. L&S (Sep 2021)

The 2014 Cambon La Pelouse has turned out beautifully. Dark cherry, plum, mocha, tobacco, spice, bittersweet chocolate and leather give the 2014 its opulent, seamless feel. This is a gorgeous everyday wine from Cambon La Pelouse and consulting winemaker Hubert de Boüard. Drinking range: 2017 - 2024 Rating: 90 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com (Feb 2017)
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”.
