    Roc de Cambes, made mainly with Merlot (60%), has good structure and presents excellent concentration. On tasting, it develops delicious chocolaty aromas. A magnificent wine: the very best of the Libournais region.

    Information about domain Roc de Cambes

    Purchased in 1988 by François Mitjavile (the owner of Tertre Roteboeuf), this domaine has managed, within a few years, to establish itself as one of the Côtes de Bourg's outstanding wines, capable of rivalling Saint Emilion's finest. Located on the banks of the Gironde, near the town of Bourg, the vineyard lies on sloping ground with a particularly favourable microclimate: the proximity of the river acts as a buffer against the cold and protects it against frost.
