Château Cambon la Pelouse Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2005
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.
External Reviews for Château Cambon la Pelouse Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
Sexy aromas of raspberry liqueur, coffee and smoke, plus a tarry nuance. Rich, broad and dense, in an extractive modern style. This boasts an almost liqueur-like ripeness, and more volume than the '06, but is it as intense? Stephen Tanzer. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 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.
