Marks and reviews
Owned since 2005 by the Merlaut family, managed by Céline Villars Foubet and Jean-Pierre Foubet, Château de Camensac is an estate founded in the 18th century in the Haut-Médoc appellation. This 5th Grand Cru Classé of 1855 was the subject of significant investments, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, which enabled the estate to be equipped with the best equipment. Château de Camensac now stands out as an important Bordeaux reference, offering fantastic value for price.
An unmissable name in Haut-Médoc, the Château de Camensac vineyard comprises 25 hectares of vines. The vines are planted in two different types of soil: the Gunzian gravel found in Saint-Julien and the Graffernian gravel found in Pessac-Léognan. It is from these two types of soil that give the wines of Château de Camensac their unique character.
2005 will be remembered as a vintage of great quality, with an exceptionally dry climate from winter to autumn for the Bordeaux region, with a hot, sunny late spring and summer but no heatwave. In August, the range of temperatures, between daytime and night-time, hastened ripening without raising the alcoholic degrees. These factors placed the balance between sweetness and acidity very high. During September, the gradual reduction in summer temperatures fixed this balance while making the harvest early and easy.
