Château Camensac

Haut-Médoc

Camensac is among the least known of the 1855 classified growth, due to its location in land West of Saint Julien; however, they have lightened up in style and emphasise more suppleness and fruit and have a certain Saint Julien-like personality. The vines are located on the commune's finest gravelly rise. The topography is fairly steep and the pebbly soil quite deep. This makes for excellent natural drainage, which is complemented by a well-maintained man-made drainage system. The estate's potential is realised thanks to a "craftsmanship" approach by the Camensac winemaking team. Each vineyard plot, each vintage, and each vat constitute a unique entity, and are treated as such. Systematic methods leaving no room for variation are avoided. The vineyards are carefully observed every day, and viticultural operations are carried out only when required, according to strictly natural criteria. At Camensac, it is not rare for the wine to be left on the skins for 25 days, or even longer in great years. The winemaking team at Camensac looks above all for fine structure and complexity, though this in no way precludes round, soft tannin. Only the best vats are sold under the Camensac label. The others are used to make a second wine, La Closerie de Camensac.
