Estate Notes

Domaine de Cambes 2007 was purchased in its original wooden case.

Domaine de Cambes is the second wine from Roc de Cambes, derived from younger vines close to the Gironde. Château Roc de Cambes is the finest château in Bourg under the perfectionist Francois Mitjavile (proprietor of Le Tertre-Rôteboeuf). It comprises 10 hectares of old vines on a south-facing slope in a natural amphitheatre facing the Gironde. Here, Mitjavile picks his grapes as late as possible to maximise ripeness and concentration, and the resulting wines are rich, stylish and full-bodied.

Reviews

"I have been a big believer in this Cote de Bourg made by the obsessive/compulsive Francois Mitjavile, who is better known for his outstanding small St.-Emilion estate, Le Tertre-Roteboeuf." eRobertParker.com

"Domaine de Cambes; which is not considered a second wine , as it comes from a different terroir and grape source. Domaine de Cambes is not in the boundaries of the Cotes de Bourg appellation. The vines are much further down the slopes and they are closer to the Gironde, creating a cooler terroir with more clay in the soils as well. However, the Merlot dominated blend used for Domaine de Cambes can be quite similar to Roc de Cambes. Domaine de Cambes, unlike Roc de Cambes is labeled and sold as a Bordeaux AOC wine."
