Owned by the Merlaut family since 2005, the Chateau de Camensac estate was built in the 18th century in the Haut-Medoc appellation, on the left bank of Bordeaux. Significant investments have gone into this 1855 5th Grand Cru Classe, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, which enabled the estate to equip itself with the required tools. Chateau de Camensac now stands out as an essential reference among fine Haut-Medoc wines.
Located on the fringe between the Haut-Medoc and Saint-Julien appellations, Chateau de Camensac’s 25-hectare vineyard is rooted on sloping gravel soils with clay-limestone subsoils.
The mild weather during the first few weeks of the year gave way to heavy rainfall from mid-April until June. These conditions increased the pressure of mildew, which was then slowed down thanks to the heat during the summer months.
Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).
A brlliant garnet color with subtle purple highlights.
The nose opens to a fresh mentholated note mixed with fruity (black cherry) and peppery notes. When aerated, aromas of liquorice and blackcurrant are revealed.
Full and lively, this wine seduces the palate with its precision and freshness. Persistent, the finish is sustained by delicious liquorice notes.
