A gem from the exceptional 2015 vintage. The structure and finesse is close to some of the top Margaux estates according to Wine Enthusiast

Chateau Cambon la Pelouse 2015
Ready, but will improve

A gem of a Cru Bourgeois. The 2015 vintage was an exceptional year and the guys at Chateau Cambon le Pelouse made sure to produce a delicious wine whilst still at a fraction of the cost of many of the top estates. This house often produces fine wines and is a popular amongst the Bordelaise people who feel it often punches above its weight. The 2015 is even better then usual - it has a similar structure and finesse to several top Margaux estates.

The blend is close to equal amounts of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with roughly 4% Petit Verdot and it offers a darker edge in its blackcurrant, underbrush, tobacco and earthy aromatics, is medium-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and has building tannin. It's absolutely worth seeking out and will drink nicely for a decade or more.

James Suckling says it is a 'dramatic wine that is hard not to like'

Aging potential:

It has just entered it's drinking window and will be delicious now or you can hold for another 10 years (2022 - 2032)
