Merlot dominated left bank Bordeaux
Château Cambon la Pelouse
Château Cambon la Pelouse is known for making powerful wines from the Haut Médoc that, thanks to the skilful winemaking on show, always manage to avoid any over extraction. Unusually for a left bank Bordeaux, many of their wines are Merlot dominated and in fact, they are known within the region for their preference to bottle with a sizeable proportion of Merlot. This ensures that their wines showcase softer tannins than many of those produced by their neighbours, as well as a delicate, silky texture. The 2015 is no different; an Haut Medoc that is both able to be enjoyed now and has the capacity to age well over the next 10 years.
