Often close in quality to the same owner's top Saint Emilion, Le Tertre Rôteboeuf. This Côtes de Bourg is head and shoulders the best wine of the appellation and very much a wine for those "in the know".
80% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Deep garnet-purple in colour, the 2023 Roc de Cambes bursts with gregarious notes of juicy black cherries and black raspberries followed by hints of violets, tar, and wood smoke with a touch of garrigue. The medium to full-bodied palate is taut, with dense muscular fruit framed by firm grainy tannins and beautiful tension, finishing long and minerally. This is impressive!
92-94 Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW

High intensity of tannins, a ton of grip and energy through the palate, black fruits and liquorice notes are exuberant with clear personality. Delicious, and should be excellent value.
91 Jane Anson.

The 2023 Roc de Cambes opens with a super-distinctive, exotic bouquet. Super-ripe black cherry, kirsch, hard candy, chocolate, spice, amaro herbs, menthol and worn-in leather infuse the palate with tremendous depth. Roc de Cambes certainly doesn't lack character. Drink 2025-2037.
90-92 Antonio Galloni, Vinous.

The 2023 Roc de Cambes delivers oodles of black cherries and cassis fruit on the nose. It's very floral and extravagant yet retains delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with liquorice-tinged black fruit, hints of Indian spice and marmalade. This is quite a tangy Roc de Cambes with a persistent, figgy finish.
89-91 Neal Martin.
