2000 Cambon la Pelouse, Haut-Médoc
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2000, which has a slightly more saturated ruby/purple color than the 2001, is fleshier, with a more substantial mouthfeel. Exhibiting sumptuous fruit, ripe tannin and a seamless texture, this serious Haut-Medoc is equivalent to many classified growths.
Rich, full-flavored Medoc with a lot of terroir character. A bit rustic, very charming after decanting one hour. Neighbor of Ch. Cantemerle (to the South) and Giscours and Ch. Margaux (to the North). 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc. At this price the perfect introduction to Bordeaux for those with "California" palates. Here is an estate to watch for future values.
