La robe est très soutenue d'une bonne intensité à l'image de ce millésime. Les arômes de cassis dominent, le nez est complexe. De la rondeur avec beaucoup de fruits en bouche Les tanins qui sont bien présents se patineront avec le temps. Il a de belles années devant lui !
This is the first wine I've thought well enough of, and that was affordable enough, to buy a full case. Lots of fruit and berry, plenty of tannin, and all-around just a very well-balanced wine. All the goodness of a 2005 Bordeaux, without the ludicrous pricing of the big-name estates. When the tag says $25, and the taste says $75, you just have to stock up. Delicious now, and it should get better with age.
Classic Bordeaux. Spicy wet wool on the nose, delicately blended jerky and syrup. Real classy like.
This wine has a wonderful deep purple color at the center, edging out to bright ruby. The nose is just what you would expect from a well crafted Haut-Medoc, rich aromas of leather, mint, a touch of cedar and dried flowers. The taste is somewhat fruit forward, with muted flavors of cassis and berry that transitions to a bit of sour cherry and some black pepper spice midpalate. The tannins are soft and well rounded, making for a classic, bone dry finish.

External Reviews for Château Camensac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
This red Bordeaux boasts black fruit flavors. The tannins are firm yet in combination with the fruit, makes this an accessible bottle.
Barrel sample. A big, firm and hard wine, with solid fruits, layers of dry tannin and great power. There's an intensity to this wine with acidity adding to the complexity and structure. - R.V. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2005 Camensac 1500ml
Tiefes Granat-Rubin, satt. Intensives, gebündeltes Bouquet, viel Cassis und eine angenehme Fülle darin. Im Gaumen saftig, wiederum füllig. Schmeichelndes Extrakt.
