Editorial Reviews for Château Camensac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
Very smoky nose, touch creamy, brambly fruit, lots of raw wood – soft entry, rigid and raw mid-palate, tannin and acid integrates with air, savory edge to the barely ripe clack currant fruit, a bit shrill (81-82)
A complex nose of animal, black cherry and even fart (!) aromas. Anise and black cherry across the palate. Good fruit with a smooth finish. A very good effort - slightly more rustic than the fruitier Chateau Beaumont tasted at the same time.
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.

Planted to 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot. Earth, cherry, and generous alcohol are evident on the bouquet and palate. Mouthwatering acidity and firm tannins rouse the senses without being overwhelming. Enjoy upon release and over the following... Roland Hankerson.

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.

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
