90-92 Pts Ian Dagata - Vinous Media
"Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose offers captivating scents of superripe red cherry, Oriental spices, vanilla, milk chocolate and coffee. Creamy-rich and dense, with compelling sweetness to its red fruit, sweet spice and aromatic herb flavors. Finishes very fine-grained and long, with a wonderfully mouthcoating texture. There has never been a Roc de Cambes at this level. I imagine that over time it won't develop the complexity and depth of a first growth, but in 2011 this is simply one of the overachievers wines of the vintage."
This is a stunning entry level offer from one of our favorite producers in the region!
"Roc de Cambes is located in the Cotes de Bourg appellation. This is not that far from St. Emilion. In fact, the estates geographical location provided the inspiration for the name of the domaine, as it is located in the commune of St. Laurent des Combes. Soon after Francois Mitjavile purchased the vineyard in late 1987, he named his new winery, Chateau Roc de Cambes. When the owner, Francois Mitjavile purchased the estate in 1988, Roc de Cambes required extensive replanting work in the vineyards and modernizations in the cellars. The chateau that was constructed in the mid to late 1700âs also needed renovations.
1998 marked the debut vintage for Domaine Roc de Cambes. That name was shortened to Roc de Cambes in 1994. The vineyard is situated not far from the Bordeuax city center and it is also less than 30 kilometers due south of St. Emilion.
Interestingly, Roc de Cambes has a terroir that is not much different from Tertre Roteboeuf, their legendary, St. Emilion estate, which is also owned by the Mitjavile family. That explains in part, why Roc de Cambes was purchased by the Mitjavile family." - Wine Cellar Insider
