Chateau de Camensac is located on the perimeter of the Medoc’s great growths, bordering on the Saint-Julien appellation. The 75 hectare vineyard consists of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vines on slopes with deep gravel soil over a mix of clay and hardpan. Cabernet Sauvignon plays a greater role than Merlot at Camensac because it is better suited to the gravelly soils, producing wines with depth, fruit, elegance and minerality. The old Merlot vines are totally complementary, yielding wines that add volume and body to the final blend.
Wines are aged for 15-18 months in 40% new oak barrels.
Blend: 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot
