Marks and reviews
Situated in the Haut-Medoc appellation, Chateau Cambon La Pelouse is one of the most important references of its appellation. The property is listed as Cru Bourgeois Exceptional following a new classification, with this title applicable from the 2018 vintage to the 2022 vintage. Chateau Cambon La Pelouse is today owned by the Treasury Wines Estates group, a world renowned reference with extensive experience in Australian, New Zealand, American and Italian vineyards.
Enjoying a remarkable located on the edge of the Margaux appellation, Chateau Cambon La Pelouse boasts a beautiful 65 hectare vineyard. The vines are planted in very lean and sandy gravel soils dating from the Quaternary period. The particularities of these soils include their excellent drainage and ability to store heat, allowing the grapes to reach perfect ripeness in time for the harvest.
The first vintage in Bordeaux for Treasury Wines Estates, 2019 had all the qualities of a great year. After a rather mild winter, summer was marked by very high temperatures and heat waves. The vines were not subjected to too much water stress, thanks to underground water reserves. The harvest, which ended on October 11, foreshadowed a great vintage, comparable to 2005, 2009, 2010, 2015 and 2018.
Tasted as a wine future, the Chateau Cambon La Pelouse 2019 is a Haut-Medoc wine with a nice balance, beautiful tannins and a great freshness despite the hot vintage.
