Close to some of the top Margaux vineyards, this estate regularly produces some fine wines. This bottling is beautifully structured, firm with tannins and also generous with black fruits. A high percentage of Merlot gives a particularly ripe and juicy wine that will age over the medium-term. Drink from 2022 Read more

Big black fruits and a ton of ripe tannins make this a dramatic wine that would be hard not to like. The balance is really good and that makes it delicious right now. If it were a bit more complex it would rate even more highly.

Another little gem Cru Bourgeois is the 2015 Château Cambon La Pelouse which comes from close to equal amounts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, with roughly 4% Petit Verdot. It offers a darker edge in its blackcurrant, underbrush, tobacco and earthy aromatics, is medium-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and has building tannin. It's absolutely worth seeking out and will drink nicely for a decade or more.

Antonio Galloni MW - Vinous

The 2015 Cambon La Pelouse is radiant and full of character. Silky tannins wrap around a core of ripe dark cherry, cedar, smoke, tobacco, grilled herb and licorice. Drink this juicy, inviting Haut Médoc over the next few years. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot.

Classy cassis fruit with real smoothness and nice length. Has both polish and grip. 2020-2028

Neal Martin - Wine Advocate

Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 Cambon la Pelouse has an outgoing, high-toned bouquet with plush blueberry and blackberry fruit, although I would have liked to see more elegance and terroir expression. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, moderate depth, touches of dried herbs, black tea and pencil shavings lacing the black fruit on the finish. It almost belatedly remembers where it comes from! Tasted September 2017.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Oaky, with sweet cherries and licorice that are easy to find, the wine is medium bodied and forward, with a hint of cocoa along with the dark red fruits in the finish. This is a wine you can drink early.

Expert Review
James Molesworth - Wine Spectator

A friendly, plump style, with a blast of warm plum and blueberry compote flavors infused with melted licorice and pudding notes. Drink now through 2020. 20,833 cases made.  –JM
