Tasting Notes

The Domaine de Combes has a fragrant nose, not quite as pixelated as the Roc de Combes, but offering pure dark cherry, dark plum and bergamot scents. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit on the entry: cranberry, raspberry leaf and a touch of pomegranate. The acidity is taut and the tannins fine and edgy towards the finish that has a pleasant bitter edge. Very fine. Tasted November 2012.

Score: 90Neal Martin,, February 2013

Deep ruby colour. Exotic and spicy on the nose, with nutmeg, clove, dark chocolate, coconut and ripe bramble fruits at the core. The palate is luscious and ripe, with polished and refined tannins gently framing the bursting black fruit at the core. This is soft and approachable for a 2010, already in its drinking window and offering waves of ripe black cherry and sweet baking spices. More savoury, toasted spices build through onto the finish that is long and driven by pure cassis fruit. Great power and complexity, a lot of wine for the money. Now-2030+.

Score: 16.5Farr Vintners, Farr Tasting, April 2019

This wine is made from a section of the Roc de Cambes vineyard that is only entitled to the straight Bordeaux appellation. Lovely strawberry and raspberry fruit. Burgundian in style and really very similar to Roc de Cambes itself and a less powerful version of the same owner's Tertre Roteboeuf.

Score: 15.5Farr Vintners, April 2011

The sweetness of the nose comes through on the palate lots of lovely fleshy fruit. Black fruits seem to dominate the ripe mix backed by black truffles. Ripe feeling tannins add to the suppleness rounded and easy towards the back with a nice weight of fruit on the finish.
