2019 Chateau de Camensac, Haut-Medoc, France (750ml)
Great care is taken in a constant search for excellence and the best expression of the Terroir. Ever more rigorous plot selection and vinification adapted to the grapes result in a fresh, seductive wine, in the same style as the label: elegant, modern, refined and with a touch of originality that breaks with the traditional image of Bordeaux's Grands Vins.
Aromas of ripe berries and baking spices with hints of hazelnuts, leather and bark. Medium-bodied and tight, with chewy tannins and a velvety texture. Compact and firm with chocolatey undertones. Needs some time to open up. 55% cabernet sauvignon and 45% merlot. Best after 2024.
- James Suckling, 92 pts.
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.
- Decanter, 91 pts.
The 2019 Camensac has turned out nicely, exhibiting aromas of blackcurrants, licorice, tobacco leaf and loamy soil, followed by a medium-bodied, fleshy and nicely balanced palate with lively acids and powdery structuring tannins. This will provide classy drinking after a few years in bottle to round out. Best after 2025.
