Tasting Notes
89-92 - Robert Parker
" 2010: A major sleeper of the vintage from this 100-acre vineyard near Cantemerle and Giscours, the 2010 is a blend of 50% Merlot, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot produced under the guidance of well-known consultant, Claude Gros. An opaque ruby/purple color is followed by sweet black raspberry, black cherry and black currant fruit notes intermixed with notions of licorice and graphite. Medium to full-bodied and supple textured, this Sexy Bordeaux should be consumed over the next 5-8 years. "
91 - 92 - Jamessuckling.com
" Loads of fruit to this young wine with masses of currants and dark berries. Full body, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. "
4 Stars : * * * * ( 16.5 points ) - Decanter
" Well-extracted black fruits, impressively rich with potential complexity and will show well." Drink 2014-22.

One word to describe my wine
Well-balanced and elegant

The history of the Château
We can attest that it is one of the longest-standing in the area and its products contributed substantially in the past to building the reputation in France and abroad of Médoc wines. When sent to England at the end of the 17th century, they commanded a price of 400 French livres for a 900-litre barrel and more.”Féret Publishers. Mr. de Cambon first made this wine, which has been preferred by wine lovers for centuries ever since. Annick, Jean-Pierre Marie and their son Nicolas have been responsible for the place’s destiny since 1996 and have completely refashioned the estate with equipment worthy of a grand cru and adopting an approach to winemaking inspired by love, creativity and foresight.
