Château Roc de Cambes, Cotes de Bourg, 2015

Tasting Note:

Francois Mitjavile explained that it had been dry since the 2014 harvest and there had been 'no blockage to maturation’. 2015 is 'ripe and freshly ripe' as opposed to 2014 which was characterised by ‘autumnal ripeness with a degraded structure'. He went on to say that 2015 is a 'supple not voluptuous' vintage, and we would agree. This is not another 2009; these are sleek, sumptuous wines, without excess. As always, Francois' interpretation is as unique as ever; Roc de Cambes is gloriously swathed in decadent black fruit, griotte liqueur, sandalwood and bright Burgundian red fruit notes. It is enormously enticing with its silky pure fruit core, aromas of dark chocolate and sweet cherry. Although decadent and impressive, there is plenty of structure here as well as good tension and acidity to marry with the succulent fruit. As with the 2014, the Roc is rather more impressive from barrel than the Tertre Roteboeuf, however, if 2014 is anything to go by, the Tertre will go gallop past during elevage. A unique and interesting wine as ever. Chapeau!
