The 2016 Camensac is an equal blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, picked from 27 September until 18 October at 42 hectoliters per hectare. There is a pastille-like purity on the nose: blackberry, briary and a light floral note coming through with time. The quality of the vintage shows through on the palate, which is very harmonious and demonstrates both excellent backbone and intensity. It builds in the mouth, maintaining plenty of freshness and with a mineral-driven finish. This is an excellent Chateau de Camensac and fingers crossed it will represent great value in the market once released.

A tangy and dense red with plum, chocolate and berry character. Full body, chewy tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows excellent upside. Nice follow-up to the excellent 2015.

Hint of pencil shavings on the nose. Then ripe fruit but it could do with a little more lift. And on the palate the phenolics are a bit underripe.

Petits fruits rouges frais, vanille. Bouche fraîche, fruitée, un peu fluide, tannins souples. Assez charmeur.

Medium bodied, with a cassis and black cherry core of fruit, earth and tobacco, the wine is crisp, crunchy and fresh.

The clearing and enhancement of the Médoc only dates from the 16th and 17th centuries. The wines of this region are quickly known and their fame crosses borders.The appellation is recognized by the decree of November 14, 1936, updated in December 2011.
The soils are mainly composed of gravels, that is to say a mixture of gravels and sands, with nuances given the extent of the appellation area and the presence of a clay-limestone subsoil outcropping very marginally.
