Also from the team at Tertre Roteboeuf and based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, the 2019 Domaine De Cambes shows a more tight, focused style compared to the Roc de Cambes Giving up opulent red, black, and blue fruit as well as subtle oak, plenty of minerality, notes of spice and violets, and a great, great finish, it might be the best of the trio (Domaine de l'Aurage, Roc de Cambes, and Domaine de Cambes). (June 2020)
93 Antonio Galloni Vinous
The 2019 Domaine des Cambes is bursting at the seams with super-ripe dark cherry, plum, espresso, licorice, menthol and chocolate. This rich, boisterous Blaye is full of energy. There's real depth and energy here, not to mention tons of character. Dried herb, leather, cedar and tobacco linger on the ample, beautifully textured finish. 2024 - 2034

Domaine de Cambes is owned by the Mitjavile family, who also own St-Emilion superstar, Le Tertre-Roteboeuf. Although it is part of Roc de Cambes, it is not considered the estate's second wine and is instead treated as a wine in its own right. Francois Mitjavile puts his exceptional winemaking skills into this Bordeaux AOC, creating a wine of style and substance without his top-end price tags. The grapes are grown on a plot adjacent to the Gironde, on clay soils and a cooler terroir, imparting its silky freshness. Like all of Mitjavile’s ventures, the quantities made are limited but for a taste of truly great wine making it is well worth grabbing a case.
This wine is made from a section of the Roc de Cambes vineyard that is only entitled to the straight Bordeaux appellation. A bit further south down the slope, creating a cooler terroir and clayey soil. In the past only 20% new oak was used but Francois Mitjavile now thinks that the quality of the fruit deserves 100% new Radoux blend barrels. 80% Merlot, 20% Cabernets. Around 16000 bottles are produced from 6 hectares of vines.
