That should not be an issue, but readers should be prepared to be patient. Iron, smoke, tobacco, cedar, menthol and licorice all add aromatic nuance to a core of dark fruit. I also tasted a bottle that had been opened two days prior. There I found a wine of amplitude and breadth. This is another superb 2016 from the Mitjavile family. -- Antonio Galloni

The 2016 Roc de Cambes was mighty impressive from barrel. Bottled in August 2018, it has retained a beguiling bouquet of perfumed red plum, blueberry, tayberry and light estuarine scents, plus a tang of a cold northern sea. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet candied opening, dark chocolate and even toffee subtly interwoven into the red fruit. The spicy finish features a healthy sprinkling of black pepper. This is an outstanding Roc de Cambes that, dare I suggest, is going to give Tertre-Rôteboeuf a run for its money. -- Neal Martin

(91+ points) The 2016 Roc de Cambes is still primordial and tough to read, showing lots of oak, yet offers serious depth and richness, tons of raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry fruit, full-bodied richness, and, again, lots of oak and cedar overtones. Hide this in the cellar for at least 4-5 years.
