Roc de Cambes is located in the Cotes de Bourg appellation. This is not that far from St. Emilion . In fact, the estates geographical location provided the inspiration for the name of the domaine, as it is located in the commune of St. Laurent des Combes. The 12 hectare vineyard of Roc de Cambes is planted to 75% Merlot , 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The terroir is mostly limestone and clay soils, similar to what you find in the Right Bank of Bordeaux, especially in Saint Emilion.
“Dark cassis colour, darker fruited and more mineral than Tertre Roteboeuf, not as sweet tasting. Savoury, fine grained, tightly structured, the Cabernet Sauvignon perhaps revealing its presence in an attractive austerity but also a zestiness. Much more to come. “
