Château-Cambon-La-Pelouse Haut Médoc 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
Wine EnthusiastThis rich wine is built by generous tannins and dense black-plum fruits. A hint of dark chocolate offers depth and an edge of extraction that does not detract from the delicious ripe fruitiness. Drink from 2023.
Wine SpectatorPlush, offering warm cassis and plum sauce flavors lined with toasted vanilla and ganache notes. A flash of cast-iron on the finish keeps this honest. A bit obvious in style but will certainly have fans. Drink now through 2028.
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Cambon la Pelouse has a medium to deep garnet-purple color and a nose of cassis, earth and bay leaves with hints of pencil lead. The medium-bodied palate is firm and chewy, finishing with an herbal lift.
