Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc

Visually limpid and intense red. Developed fruity nose, melted tannins, large and elegant structure with great harmony, long and frank persistence.

"A big, sweet bouquet of melted chocolate, black currants, vanilla, and cedar is followed by a full-bodied, rich, impressively constituted 2004 Cambon La Pelouse with no hard edges. This sleeper of the vintage is ideal for drinking during its first 7-8 years of life."

My Notes:

About Château Cambon La Pelouse:

The property of Cambon La Pelouse is situated between Cantemerle and Giscours at one of the highest points of Macau. It borders the property of Labarde, from which it is separated by only a small country path.

Cambon La Pelouse is known for uniting aroma and delicacy with stability and fullness and, as it is one of the oldest vineyards in the region, it has largely contributed to giving Medoc wines their reputation.

In June 2003, it was elevated to a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur.
