"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Cambon la Pelouse is scented of cedar, tar and earth with a core of warm plums and cassis with mocha and lavender hints. The palate is full-bodied, firm and laden with fruit, supported by grainy tannins and finishing long."
(90-92/100) points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate, April 2019
"Mid crimson. Subtle aroma of black fruit and stone dust, black olive too. Sinewy but not lean. The tannins are already rounded and slimmed down. Well-balanced whole. (JH)"
16/20 points, Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, December 2021
