Chateau l'Aura de Cambon Margaux 2006

Member Review by Nickko:

« (A 50 / 50 Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) Deep medium ruby. Black raspberry, violet and sweet oak on the nose; this reminded me of Vosne-Romanée. Sweet and chewy, offering a mouthful of dark berries and a rather pliant, threedimensional texture. Finishes with substantial ripe, dusty tannins and good length. The first vintage from a tiny vineyard purchased in 2006 by the owner of Cambon La Pelouse. I like this.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

First vintage for this wine, from a tiny one acre vineyard purchased by the owner of Cambon La Pelouse. Situated near Cantenac Brown, it is planted with equal parts Caberbet Sauvignon and Merlot. Loads of sweet black fruit, with a lithe personality despite its intensity and weight. A cult wine from Margaux!
