Roc de Cambes 2010 (750ML)
90-93 IWC
92 Points, The Wine Advocate: The 2010 Roc de Combes has a very pure nose of black cherries, plum and iodine. It is well defined, quite elegant rather than intense, becoming more floral with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a lovely, subtle opening of dark plum, mulberry and a little spice. The tannins are refined and remain in the background, finely interwoven into the texture, whilst the finish is understated and somehow, effortless. This is a great Roc de Combes that has fulfilled its promise from barrel. Tasted November 2012. 17.5/20, Jancis Robinson: 70% Merlot, 5% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. Picked 15 Oct. Exceptionally dark crimson. Very sweet and rich and tense. One of the tensest wines I have come across - real tension on top of great ripe fruit rather than overworked 'taut' wines. Really very impressive. Much more structure than most Tertre vintages. Very small grapes and rich and very exciting. Not at all porty but very sweet and fresh. Holds its alcohol well. Very fresh. Really very unusual! Spicy and rich but not at all heavy. Smoothed tannins - thanks to all that new oak? Though very fresh and not that long on the finish. 15.3% "Very deep ruby. Sexy aromas of black cherry, plum and cinnamon are lifted by a hint of violet. Less sweet and rich in the mouth than the 2009, but with an attractive violet note complicating the black cherry and spicy plum flavors. Spreads out impressively on the broad back end, finishing with very supple tannins. Another superb Roc de Cambes in the making, but this will need some time in the cellar...90-93" IWC 6/11
