2020 Domaine de Cambes, Bordeaux

The forgotten wine of Francois Mitjavile, the 2020 Domaine des Cambes shouldn't be missed. It's cooler than its brother, with a certain nobility to the tannins. This is surely the best Bordeaux AOC you'll find.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Domaine de Cambes has a perfumed, floral bouquet of black plum, bilberry and raspberry preserve infused with pressed iris and violet petals; fine delineation and focus here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, and a little oaky at the moment, but there is an attractive underlying peppery, almost sage-like note that comes through on the finish. Give this 2–3 years once in bottle.

Neal Martin, vinous.com (May 2021)

Ripe, rich and concentrated, the fruit on the edge of confit. Little evidence of the oak at present but a light, grainy, tannic frame. Voluptuous and gourmand as always. (JL)
