2011 Domaine Roses Camille
Back in Stock!
"Domaine Roses Camille, Pomerol, 2011: Still very youthful and tight, this 100 percent Merlot, full-bodied wine, which was aged in new French oak barrels for 30 months, has a dark garnet color. Look for flavors and aromas of blackberry, cherry, raspberry, boysenberry, brier, espresso, chicory, oak, cedar, pipe tobacco and mineral-earthiness. While this wine shows great promise of things to come, with its searing tannins and acidity, opening it now is tantamount to infanticide (although if you must open it now, decant at least eight hours before serving). Best 2021-2032 or perhaps longer."
-Gamliel Kronemer, Jewish Week March 2016
"...Once again, this 100% Merlot wine is sourced from the family’s highest quality plot on their three-hectare plot and aged for just north of two years in new French oak. After opening with a still uber-closed nose of mostly black fruit, delightfully expressive and earthy minerals, cedar wood, fresh-cured tobacco leaf, wet forest floor, lead pencil and some bitter anise alongside a lovely hint of barnyard funk, the full-bodied palate more than delivers on the promise with more of the same and layers of complexity that [ever-so-]slowly open up to reveal the treasures that lie beneath. Searing but well-structured tannins and enamel-stripping acidity combine to provide the promised for [relatively] super-long aging, but at this point it would literally be criminal to pop the cork on the wine. Stock up and forget about the wine for at least five years, after which enjoy it through 2026, likely longer."
