Food Pairings for Château Camensac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
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.
Lots of wet wool on the nose. Tastes very similar to some crazy expensive Bordeaux's I've had, but its slightly more prickly in the mouth. Very well-balanced and a joy to drink.
I have always enjoyed wines from around the world, but am not an expert by any stretch of the imagination! I have no formal training and I don't know the proper verbiage to describe the tastes and sensations and smells associated with wines. However, I had the very fortunate luck to have a full glass of Château Camensac 1997 this summer and it was hands down the absolute best wine I have ever tasted in my life. To me it was the perfect balance and was not offensive in ANY way to ANY of my senses - I was very sad to come to the end of the glass. This is now the first wine that I have ever mentioned to any wine-lover I know.. and the first wine I have actively tried to locate through various means.
Smooth but steady. Fruity and good smell of berry. Bought at Hiranoya (Yokohama) http://www.rakuten.co.jp/hiranoya/ 8,000 yen (excluding tax)
External Reviews for Château Camensac Red Bordeaux Blend Haut-Médoc
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. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Camensac 375ml
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.
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
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
<p> <p>This Bordeaux in the classic style is from the Camensac vineyards in the commune of Saint-Laurent-Médoc in which mostly Cabernet Sauvignon (60% of the vineyard area) grapes with the remainder being entirely Merlot.</p> </p>
