Etwas starker Oxidationsgeschmack, wird aber durchs Alter sicher korrigiert. Nettes Preis-/Genussverhältnis.
This Cru Bourgeois (Haut-Medoc) is dark red - almost tenturier-like in depth. On the nose there is blackberry, cassis and cedar bark with a hint of menthol. En bouche, the red fruit is forward with good mouth-feel (round) and grip. Tannin is well in evidence but not overpowering making this wine very enjoyable now. Medium long finish. Drink now through 2019. 90 points.
Three and a half glasses
Bottled aired about 2 hrs. Nose of hints of smoke, mineral, floral, red fruit. In the mouth chewy savory slightly smoky woody earth, mineral, and fruit in roughly equal proportion and somewhat tannic. Dry, Body medium minus, acid medium minus, tannin medium plus. Tasty and ok to drink now with good decanting. 50% merlot, 30% cab sauv, 18% cab franc, 2% petit verdot.
It combined the best of old and new world flavors. I'm not sure if it's just the 2005's or what, but I loved this wine, and thought it could pass as a much more expensive variety. Very velvety.

Good full ruby. Inky aromas of crushed black fruits, violet and mint. Lush, broad and creamy, in a softer, modern style. A fairly lush, large-scaled wine, finishing with dusty, building tannins. This is actually rather atypical for a wine from this c... Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2007 Cambon la Pelouse 750ml
Die Charakteristik des Weines ist stark duch den Merlot geprägt. Umwerfendes, reifes Beerenbouquet, fein buttrige Note. Samtiger, charmanter Gaumen, angerundete Gerbstoffe. Gekochte Kirschen im Finale.
