The finesse and creaminess of a Hautù-Médoc red wine
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.
The winter began with rain and scattered cold spells. The heat of June advanced even flowering. Although July was scorching, August was milder, with rainfall that helped to ensure a good veraison. The alternation of cool days and cold nights in September slowed down ripening. Despite these conditions, the grapes harvested were of high quality.
