The 2016 Cambon la Pelouse felt a little disjointed on the nose with quite strong undergrowth aromas percolating through the black fruit. The palate is balanced with stringy tannin, moderate depth with a precise and detailed finish. All it needs is more vigor and intent. Drinking range: 2019 - 2030 Rating: 88-90 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Apr 2017)

Savoury and appetising nose. Rich and flattering fruity palate. Still very youthful. Drinking range: 2023 - 2035 Rating: 16+ Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Apr 2017)

Fresh, modest and open in feel, with gentle plum and cherry notes, backed by a twinge of dried savory on the finish. Rating: 87-90 James Molesworth, The Wine Spectator (Apr 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”.
