Ch Roc de Cambes
The outstanding wine of its appellation, Roc de Cambes is made by the meticulous, eccentric and inspired François Mitjavile. It is reported that when François Mitjavile first visited Roc de Cambes he put his finger in the ground and decided to buy the estate there and then. He bought Roc de Cambes in 1987, but it required a lot of work, so much so that François didn't celebrate his first vintage there until 1989!
François has transformed the fortunes of this property buy bringing his wine-making philosophy and all his technical know-how from Tertre Roteboeuf and applying the same principles to this fabulous site. The 12-hectare vineyard, which contains some very old vines (some up to 50 years old), consist of a blend of 75% merlot, 20% cabernet sauvignon and 5% malbec.
