This estate is regaining its rightful place in the prestigious crus classés. Richly textured, this latest release shows luscious blackberry fruits and layers of firm tannins. The wine will age well, so wait to drink until 2026.

Blueberries with hints of hazelnuts and chocolate on the nose and palate. Full body. Velvety tannins. Nicely done.

Much better in the bottle than in the barrel, the wine is medium bodied, with a cedar, tobacco and red currant profile. Forward, soft, fresh, fruity and with a classic lean to its chewy, spicy red fruit finish. This is best vintage of Chateau de Camensac I have ever tasted.

Haut-Médoc

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.
