The Story

5th Classified Growth of 1855 located in the Haut-Médoc appellation, château de Camensac benefits from a vineyard with a total area of 75 hectares. Aged 35 years on average, the vines are planted on a terroir composed of thick Gunzian soils of the Quaternary and fine Villafranchian gravel of the Tertiary. The wine is aged in French oak barrels. The 2009 vintage blends 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot.

Vintage 2020

In Bordeaux, the heat led to early flowering. Additionally, this led to an early harvest after a very hot summer. As a starting point, there is great maturity in the grapes, and we can expect a more opulent vintage than in recent years.

This year's summer was the hottest since 1959, but the rain fell at just the right time during the growing season. The harvest took place two weeks before the norm and will produce grapes with high alcohol potential and the lowest acidity since the 2003 vintage. As they say in Bordeaux: “It was a good and extreme growing season which , hopefully, also produces great wines.”

Dark purple couleur with violet hue and black core. Very elegant and quite closed nose, refined character with fragrant fruit. Discreet spiciness and pencil shavings. Flinty hints in the background with a discreet flowery hints. Excellent structure, tightly woven with fine and almost silky tannins, fine acidity, elegant fruit and a good balance, very convincing length.
