Roc de Cambes 2013
Côtes de Bourg
Presentation of the vineyard: 12.5 hectares of the vineyard is planted to 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon. The terroir is mainly composed of limestone and clay soils, similar to those found on the right bank of Bordeaux, particularly in Saint-Émilion. The vineyard is exposed south-southwest on the top of a plateau, with a view of the river. The vines are old. In fact, many of the vines used for Roc de Cambes are nearly 50 years old, which is impressive. They have vines that are over 50 years old, which adds to the concentration, character and complexity of the wines.
Roc de Cambes is vinified in traditional concrete tanks. Malolactic fermentation takes place in French oak barrels. The wine is then aged in an average of 50% new French oak barrels for 18 to 24 months before bottling. The vineyards are located much further up the slopes and are closer to the Gironde River, creating a cooler, more clayey terroir.
To wit: Winemaker also in connection with Château Martet and Château Tertre Roteboeuf.
