2015 Roc de Cambes, Côtes de Bourg (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1256869 90-93 points Vinous

 Iron, smoke and tobacco wrap around a core of expressive red-fleshed fruit in the 2015 Roc de Cambes. Powerful and explosive, with a real sense of energy, the 2015 packs a serious punch. There is no shortage of intensity or richness here, but the Roc de Cambes is not quite as racy or unctuous as the Domaine des Cambes. The 20% Cabernet Franc helps keep a measure of freshness.

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Roc des Cambes has an incredibly pure bouquet that is as much Côtes de Nuits as Côtes de Bourg! Wonderful cassis mixed with dark cherries and a touch of bergamot. The palate is very well balanced with hints of fresh date and fig on the entry, a fine bead of acidity here, slightly powdery in texture with impressive balance and tension on the finish. François Mitjavile's wine always benefits from 3-4 years in bottle, although I would not begrudge anyone succumbing to temptation earlier. (NM)  (4/2016)

Jancis Robinson

 Very intense and rich. Great spice and softness. Totally unlike anything else. Perfumed but with such gorgeous mastery of tannins. What a contrast to the tenseness of the Pavie stable. Already gorgeous!  (4/2016)

This Fran├žois Mitjavile's wine always benefits from 3-4 years in bottle,but the 2015 is very tempting.By far the best Bourg wine made. Only 300 cases make it to the USA
Drink from 2018 to 2030

Additional Information:



- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
