External Reviews for Château Camensac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-médoc
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.
*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
