En Primeur product: order now for arrival mid 2019. Delectable quality and charm are so accessibly priced in this historic Bordeaux of Haut Medoc. Vines with an average age of 35 years are very closely planted (between five and seven thousand per hectare), which forces a fruit quality comparable to top estates. The style however is lush and complimentary young, partly thanks to a relatively high percentage of Merlot for this region (almost equal to Cabernet). With serious aging potential but definite appeal in youth, this Haut Medoc from a great vintage is a steal at this price. To remove foreign exchange risk for our customers, listed prices are all up final landed cost including GST. Payment is due on invoice/order placement, with delivery in mid 2019.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Verdot

Its Origins

Mr. de Cambon first made this wine, with Annick, Jean-Pierre Marie and their son Nicolas responsible for the place’s destiny since 1996. They have completely refashioned the estate with equipment worthy of a grand cru and adopting an approach to winemaking inspired by love, creativity and foresight. According to early Féret Guides: “We can attest that it is one of the longest-standing in the area and its products contributed substantially in the past to building the reputation in France and abroad of Médoc wines.”

What The Critics Say

88-91/100 Vinous, Antonio Galloni

"The 2016 Cambon La Pelouse is fabulous. Pliant, generous and totally sexy, the 2016 exudes richness in all of its dimensions. Succulent red cherry, plum, leather, spice and herb notes build into the resonant, fleshy finish. I expect the 2016 will drink well right out of the gate. Hubert de Boüard consults. Tasted two times."

16+/20 Jancis Robinson MW

"Savoury and appetising nose. Rich and flattering fruity palate. Still very youthful." Drink 2023 - 2035
