    A powerful and fruity second wine of the Haut-Medoc

    The property
    The Chateau de Camensac keeps itself out of the media spotlight but delivers a quite remarkable production, as do many of the Haut-Medoc on the left bank of Bordeaux. Since 1964 - and the years following the Forner family's move to Chateau de Camensac - the property has benefited from an extensive renovation plan. Today and since 2005, Chateau de Camensac is under the management of the Merlaut family.

    The vineyard
    Located on the edge of the Haut-Medoc appellation and the Saint-Julien, the 25-hectare vineyard is established on sloping gravelly soils. The sub-soils are clay-limestone.

    Vinification and maturing
    After harvesting, the grapes are transported to stainless steel or concrete vats. After vinification, the wine is transferred to barrels for aging.

    Assemblage
    La Closerie de Camensac 2018, the second wine of Chateau de Camensac, is made from a blend of Merlot supplemented by Cabernet Sauvignon.
