A refined and velvety Haut-Médoc red wine

The estate

Owned by the Merlaut family since 2005 and managed by Céline Villars Foubet and Jean-Pierre Foubet, Château de Camensac has been poised in the heart of the Haut-Médoc appellation since the 18th century. This 1855 5th Grand Cru Classé has been the subject of significant investments, both in the vineyard and in the cellar, which have enabled the estate to equip the vineyard with high caliber tools. Today, Château de Camensac is a reference in the Bordeaux area and offers one of the most attractive price-quality ratios.

The vineyard

Located in Haut-Médoc, the Château de Camensac vineyard covers 25 hectares of vines. The vines are planted on two different types of soil: the Günzian gravel found in Saint-Julien and the Villefranchian gravel found in Pessac-Léognan. The uniqueness of the estate's wines is born from these two types of soils.

The vintage

The winter of 2021 was characterised by heavy rainfall and very mild temperatures. Spring commenced with high temperatures during the month of March, which kick-started the vines' early growing cycle. In April, frost hit the vineyard and a wet flowering period followed, which was more beneficial to the Cabernet Sauvignon than to the Merlot grapes. Summer was within seasonal norms and then rain returned around harvest season, which was carried out at perfect maturity at Château de Camensac: from September 28th to October 6th for the Merlot grapes and from October 6th to 13th for the Cabernet Sauvignon variety.

The blend

Cabernet Sauvignon (66%)

Merlot (34%).
