Investment Grade Wine
This small production wine is carefully crafted from a premier parcel in the Pomerol region of Bordeaux. Winemaker Christophe Bardeau, who formerly was an associate winemaker at Pomerol's legendary l'Eglise Clinet, made the production from this vintage entirely Kosher. The wine, and the winery, have received high marks from Wine Spectator, Decanter, and Daniel Rogov.
Tasting note from Gamliel Kronemer: Domaine Roses Camille, Pomerol, 2006: Bright garnet in color and full bodied, this impressive 100 percent Merlot wine has a complex nose, redolent of blackberries, boysenberries, plums, cassis, cherries, mocha and oak, with a whiff of cigar box aromas and a rich background earthiness. The flavor is equally complex with elements of cherries, blackberries, cassis, crème de cassis, dark chocolate, endives, pipe tobacco, white truffles, coffee, cedar and oak, all played out on a lovely mineral background. Well structured, with a nice level of tannin, this wine is enjoyable now, but will only be at its best starting in late 2017, and then should cellar well until 2028 or perhaps longer. One of the best wines I have ever tasted. Score: A"
Tasting note from Daniel Rogov: "Domaine Roses Camille, Pomerol, 2006: Based primarily on Merlot, full-bodied, with soft, gently caressing tannins and a hint of spicy oak. On the nose and palate blackcurrants, raspberries and tobacco, those supported nicely by notes of mocha. Generous and long, with an enchanting note of black licorice on the finish. Approachable now but this one will show its best and at its most elegant from 2014-2028. Score 93."
