Description

A harmonious and powerful Haut-Médoc red wine

The estate

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.

The vineyard

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 vintage

The winter was mild with heavy rainfall. The flowering was then evenly distributed thanks to an unexpected period of sunshine. The summer was very hot and dry, so much so that the water reserves at the beginning of the year were put to the test. The month of September brought some restorative rains for the vines, which resumed their ripening phase. The harvest was finally carried out late in the year under ideal weather conditions.

Blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (50%)
Merlot (50%).
