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