2003 Roc de Cambes

Roc de CambesWriting in the Wall Street Journal, Will Lyons recommended this wine, which comes from Bordeaux winemaker François Mitjaville. He wrote: “Although they are made with Merlot and Cabernet Franc, the smell is evocative of red Burgundy – a wine created from Pinot Noir. Texturally, they are very light, easy to digest and – dare I say it – dangerously easy to drink. It isn’t surprising that in wine circles Mr. Mitjaville retains a cult following.”

He added about this wine: “Produced by Francois Mitjaville from the infamous hot vintage of 2003, this wine is dark crimson, with appealing notes of truffle, stewed meat and exotic spices. Given the heat in 2003, it is astonishing that it contains such uplifting acidity and sheer drinkability. Very good indeed.”
