Planted to 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot on a gravelly rise with deep pebbly soil. Camensac uses 35 to 70% new oak (the rest consisting of barrels that have been used for one single vintage) and the wine spends from 17 to 20 months in barrel.... Andy Frieden. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Camensac 1500ml

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.


Winemaker's Notes:

"Possibly the finest Camensac I have tasted, the dense purple-colored 2010 offers loads of fruit (black currants and blackberries) intermixed with subtle notions of smoke, graphite and oak. Medium to full-bodied and rich, it is capable of lasting 15 or more years. It could turn out to be a *sleeper of the vintage*."*Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (89-91 points)**We will notify you on arrival Summer 2013*
