The 2015 Roc de Cambes is dense, powerful and savory in style. Iron, grilled herbs, tobacco and cedar are some of the many notes that give the wine its distinctive feral personality. Energetic and vibrant in the glass, it offers notable intensity in a wild, almost unrestrained style. This especially forbidding, rustic 2015 needs a bit of time to be at its very best; I would give it at least a year or two in bottle to allow the tannins to soften a bit. The blend is 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, but the Cabernet is especially strong. (AG)
The 2015 Roc des Cambes has an incredibly pure bouquet that is as much Côtes de Nuits as Côtes de Bourg! Wonderful cassis mixed with dark cherries and a touch of bergamot. The palate is very well balanced with hints of fresh date and fig on the entry, a fine bead of acidity here, slightly powdery in texture with impressive balance and tension on the finish. François Mitjavile's wine always benefits from 3-4 years in bottle, although I would not begrudge anyone succumbing to temptation earlier. (NM)
