    About the Wine

    Step into the world of Domaine de Cambes, an enchanting winery located in Bordeaux that will leave you mesmerized. With its roots in the esteemed Mitjavile family, this wine carries the touch of a winemaking genius, François Mitjavile himself.

    Picture this: The sun-drenched vineyards of Cotes De Bourg, a region known for its exquisite wines. In the heart of this stunning place lies the Domaine de Cambes, a small estate that radiates charm and character. François Mitjavile, a maestro in the world of winemaking, transformed this 14th-century Chateau into a haven for crafting extraordinary wines.

    With no winemaking experience in 1970, François Mitjavile knocked on the doors of Château Figeac, and the rest is history. A true visionary, he risked it all for perfection, crafting wines with an uncommon richness while maintaining a perfect balance. Domaine de Cambes is a testament to his exceptional winemaking skills.

    Owned by the Mitjavile family, the same people behind St-Emilion superstar, Le Tertre-Roteboeuf, this wine is a masterpiece in itself. Grown on clay soils and a cooler terroir, it captures silky freshness, making it a tantalizing experience. 

    This wine is a gateway to the wonderful Mitjavile world. Its limited quantities make it a true gem for those seeking something exceptional without breaking the bank.Don't miss this chance to savor the craftsmanship of one of France's greatest winemakers. 

    2015 was an extraordinary vintage for Bordeaux. Wine Spectator and Vinous Media blessed this year with a 97-point review. Vinous said: "Bordeaux enjoyed its strongest vintage in a number of years in 2015. The 2015s are spectacularly rich, racy wines loaded with personality."

    See Critical Reviews for detailed tasting notes.


    The nose is fruity gourmand, relatively gourmand and offers a small freshness and richness. It reveals notes of cherry, cassis, and cassis bud associated with a hint of blackberry. The palate is fruity, gourmand, mineral, well built, precise, relatively fat, and offers a beautiful fruit as well as a beautiful and a bit silky matter. On the palate, this wine expresses notes of red fruit (cherry, raspberry) combined with touches of blackberry, cassis, and cassis buds as well as a hint of licorice, coffee, and dark chocolate powder. Tannins are fine and elegant. Good length and persistence with slight notes of hazelnut and slightly toasted notes. ~92 VertdeVin

    From the team at Tertre Rôteboeuf and based on 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc brought up in new barrels, the 2015 Domaine de Cambes is a serious, age-worthy wine from the Côtes de Bourg appellation, which is located on the right bank, north of Fronsac and along the river. Possessing more depth of fruit compared to the 2015, with loads of darker fruits, toasted bread, and graphite, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, good concentration, and a firm, structured, focused style. It just needs 2-4 years of bottle age. ~91+ Jeb Dunnuck

    Super-ripe black cherry, plum, mocha, new leather and spice notes abound in the 2015 Domaine des Cambes. Plush on the palate, with silky tannins and no hard edges, the 2015 will drink well with minimal cellaring. This is another heady, exotically rich 2015 from Francois Mitjavile. Domaine des Cambes is predominantly Merlot and Cabernet Franc from clay/limestone soils on the lower slopes of the property. ~91 Vinous

    The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Domaine de Cambes opens with lovely red and black currants, spicy plums and blueberries with touches of pencil lead, tobacco and Indian spices. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and chewy with plenty of spicy fruit and a long, earthy finish. ~90 Robert Parker
