Jane Anscon - Decanter: A classified growth that can offer excellent value in the best vintages. This has full on blackberry and redcurrant fruits, there are fresh acidities running through it that make the tannins close down very tightly on the finish. This is highly promising, has enticity sapidity and savoury Médocain-style fruit character. 91/100 points.
Château Camensac is a Bordeaux wine estate in the Haut-Médoc region, just over the border from Saint-Julien. It was ranked as a fifth growth in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. After some decades of relative obscurity the wine is now widely regarded as one to watch, and usually combines solidity and suppleness, while showing plenty of blackcurrant.
The estate has around 75 hectares (185 acres) of vines with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot planted in an approximate 60:40 split. Vineyards are largely continguous; the railway line divides the main blocks from the "Lagrange" plots, which are adjacent to Château Lagrange in Saint-Julien. Soils are predominantly gravel (with a zone of sandy gravel) and planted to Cabernet Sauvignon; areas of chalky clay around the borders of the property are where most of the Merlot blocks are situated.
Harvest is undertaken manually and, after sorting, fermentation takes place in concrete and stainless steel tanks. After blending, the grand vin is aged for 17 to 20 months in French oak barriques, of which around 40 percent are new.
Château Camensac has was bought in 2005 by the Merlaut family who also own Chasse-Spleen and Gruaud-Larose. It had previously been owned by the Rioja-based Forner family of Marques de Caceres fame.
