The finesse of a full-bodied and delicious Haut-Médoc wine
The property of the Merlaut family since 2005, Château de Camensac is an estate built in the 18th century in the Haut-Médoc, on the left bank of Bordeaux. This 1855 5th Grand Cru Classé has undergone major investments, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, which have enabled the estate to equip itself with the tools it needs. Château de Camensac now stands out as an essential name among the great wines of Bordeaux’s Left Bank.
An unmissable reference among Haut-Médoc wines, the Château de Camensac vineyard stretches across 86 hectares on two different types of soil: the Günzian gravel found in Saint-Julien and the Villefranchian gravel found in Pessac-Léognan. It is these two types of soil that gives the estate's wines their unique quality.
La Closerie de Camensac is Château de Camensac’s Second Wine.
The frost that hit the Bordeaux vineyards at the end of April did not spare Château de Camensac. However, hard work carried out in the vineyard led to a harvest of perfectly ripe grapes.

The frankness of the attack makes way immediately for the elegance and finesse of the tannic structure. The tight framework appears in the full-bodied palate, drawing out to a lengthy finish highlighted by delicious chocolatey notes.
