Deep ruby colour with a quintessentially Mitjavile nose. Full of sweet spices, ripe cherry and plum fruit with exotic incense and roasted meats. The palate is plush and rounded, with succulent tannins gently framing the ripe core of fruit. Smoky sweetness adds a plushness to the fruit is this spherical and forward wine. Juicy and moreish yet complex and spicy, this is open-knit and ready to go, though you could comfortably age it for another 5-8 years.
The 2015 Domaine de Cambes, from François Mitjavile of Tertre Rôteboeuf, has an extremely pure bouquet: vibrant, almost shimmering red and black fruit with superb tension, a touch of rose petal in the background. The palate is soft and rounded on the entry, a touch of sea salt on the tip of the tongue, moderate weight in the mouth with pencil lead notes infusing the black fruit towards the sedate finish. I can imagine this drinking after 2-3 years, but as a recent vertical proved, Domaine de Cambes has a propensity to give a decade's worth of drinking pleasure, so don't be afraid of laying this down.

The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Domaine de Cambes opens with lovely red and black currants, spicy plums and blueberries with touches of pencil lead, tobacco and Indian spices. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and chewy with plenty of spicy fruit and a long, earthy finish.

calming, cooling palate. Lovely and balanced this is a charming wine and it is already into its stride with completely
