Winemaker's Notes:

Deep and brilliant ruby color. Aromas intermixed of red and black berries with notes of toasty oak & spices. Richly fruity, soft and round. Well balanced, the tannins will be sweeter in two to three years to give a very harmonious wine. Peak 2014 - 2017.

Pair with duck with crème de cassis or honey, quails with currants or leg of lamb.

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.
