Chateau Roc-de-Cambes Cotes de Bourg 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Cotes de Bourg|
VinousThe 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.
Wine AdvocateDeep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Roc de Cambes has very pure notes of cassis, blackberries and plums with nuances of cigar box, anise and lavender. The medium to full-bodied palate offers generous fruit, great concentration and freshness with firm, grainy tannins and an herbal lift on the finish.
