Château Camensac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

*One of the finest, if not the very best Camensac I have ever tasted*, this wine possesses loads of black currants, black cherries, cedar wood and spice box as well as a bit of earth and underbrush. It is medium to full-bodied, very generously endowed and quite long.Robert Parker Wine Advocate

Despite the impression one may have received from the media, there are a certain number of estates in the Haut-Médoc appellation producing quite remarkable wine, although they may not currently be in the limelight. This is so for Chateau Camensac. After several decades of relatively mediocre performance, this château has clearly revived the tradition of quality that earned the château a place in the prestigious 1855 classification. This achievement is undoubtedly due to the huge effort made by the Forner family since 1964. The Forner family launched a major renovation programme soon after acquiring Camensac. They installed ultra-modern equipment and entirely renovated the winemaking facilities, in keeping with the estate's large scale. The remarkably restored chateau building symbolises this renaissance. The château (a simple, but beautiful, 18th century manor house) is flanked either side by cellars and outbuildings. "Nature alone, however advantageous, cannot guarantee the production of outstanding wine" is the prevailing attitude at Château Camensac... Despite this modesty, it is obvious that the estate has outstanding natural assets: excellent soil and a dimension that makes it possible to make extremely refined selections. A dynamic, quality-oriented policy makes the most of these assets, giving Camensac balance and distinction increasingly recognised by the wine media. Read less

Nicely polished, featuring dark plum and currant flavors laced with cocoa powder and roasted vanilla bean notes, which extend through the finish. Drink now through 2013. -JM Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Camensac 750ml

Bordering on the Saint Julien appellation, Château Camensac is located within the perimeter of Médoc great growths. The 75 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines grow on magnificent slopes of fine, deep gravel with a clay (ironpan) subsoil. Camensac is a very ancient estate included on Belleyme's map in the late 18th century. The name of Camensac comes from local patois meaning "on the water way" (camens = "path", and ac = "water"). Dug by monks in the 17th century below the gravelly rises, a series of ditches drain any excess rainwater from the subsoil into the Gironde estuary. The Merlaut family acquired the estate in time to make the 2005 vintage. Céline Villars and Jean Merlaut are now at the helm of this great growth château.The niece and her uncle are respectively owners of Chasse-Spleen and Gruaud-Larose. Eric Boissenot is consulting oenolgist.

Currant and mineral on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, with fine tannins and a medium finish. Needs a little more fruit concentration in the midpalate for such a top vintage. Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Camensac 750ml
