SPECIAL: Ground shipping included on 3 bottles or more!

It’s been a minute since we got our hands on some killer 2016 Bordeaux to share with our loyal fans. Thankfully that changes today! We are bursting with excitement over this wine, crafted by François Mitjavile, the remarkable talent behind Roc de Cambes and Tertre Roteboeuf. 93pts Jeb Dunnuck, 92pts Vinous and 40% off! Do not simply move on because if you recall our overzealous enthusiasm for 2016 Bordeaux, you will want to procure a modest stash of this gem.

Sourced just outside of Côte de Bourg and St. Emilion in what’s considered Côtes de Bordeaux, the vines here are closer to the Gironde enjoying a cooler terroir. A predominantly Merlot driven blend with 20% Cabernet Franc, Mitjavile flexes his unique talents to craft a suave wine with smooth, sweetly integrated tannins.

Dark and classically French with rich notes of black plums, black raspberries, blueberries, violets, toasty mocha, cigar box and cedar. The palate offers beautiful structure and a lovely pop of fresh fruit at the beginning leading to a toasty, roasted fruit finish. This can certainly be enjoyed now, but will only get better with time (we’re salivating just thinking how glorious it will be in 10-15 years).

There you have it, folks! 40% off, 93pts, for a slam-dunk 2016 Bordeaux. While it lasts!

93 Jeb Dunnuck -
More elegant than the 2015, the 2016 Domaine de Cambes comes from the Mitjavile family of Tertre Rôteboeuf and is an 80/20 split of Merlot and Cabernet Franc brought up in new oak. It offers a layered, seamless texture as well as notes of caramelized blackberry and blueberry fruits, toasted bread, classy oak, and spice. Beautiful on all accounts, with medium to full body and a great mid-palate as well as sweet tannins, it’s a sensational wine from this unheralded appellation that deserves attention.
92 Vinous -
The 2016 Domaine des Cambes, made by François Mitjavile of Tertre-Rôteboeuf, has a pure, cassis- and blueberry-scented bouquet that reveals top notes of crushed violet petals and even a hint of ink. The palate is silky-smooth with fine tannin and lightly spiced with a dash of white pepper. The cohesive backbone is deeply impressive. Gentle but insistent in terms of grip, leading to a very fresh finish. This Domaine des Cambes really is superb, and it will offer much drinking pleasure over the next decade.
