The finesse and fruitiness of a great red wine from Haut-Medoc
Having the benefit of an excellent location in the heart of the Haut-Medoc appellation in the Bordeaux region, Chateau Cambon La Pelouse looks out on a vineyard with a rare terroir of gravel soils. This emblematic estate takes its name from its first planted local plot next to the chateau.
As the estate’s first label, Chateau Cambon La Pelouse 2017 was the vintage of all challenges. The greatest challenge was to be responsive at all times, but this responsiveness paid off. The Chateau Cambon La Pelouse 2017 comes out on top due to the extreme attention and rigour of the technical team of the estate. Grown in excellent conditions, the berries reached their ideal phenolic ripeness, and the careful selection of them at harvest allowed the technical team to extract the best for the 2017 vintage.
As a typical blend from the Medoc (54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot), it was vinified in line with advice from the oenologist consultant Hubert de Bouard. The Chateau Cambon La Pelouse 2017 displays the typicality of its vintage with a fruity profile. It is elegant and fresh with the structure that can be expected from Left Bank wines. A beautiful wine with a promising development.
