Domaine de Cambes�is another label by Francois Mitjavile, produced at the Roc de Cambes facility, but Mitjavile insists this is not a second wine. The grapes come from a vineyard just outside the Cote de Bourg and St.-Emilion boundaries, so it carries the 'Bordeaux AOC' designation. .The vines have a lower elevation and are closer to the Gironde, creating a cooler terroir with more clay in the soil, but the end result for this Merlot-dominated blend is still quite similar in structure and finesse to the Tertre Roteboeuf and Roc de Cambes. Mitjavile is well-known for his unique winemaking that consistently produces wines that are described as suave, exotic with smooth, caressing tannins.
