Chateau Camensac 2002, Haut Medoc 5th Growth

December 29, 2017

 

Deep ruby, tight rim. Classic vocabularies: cherry and black currant fruit with earth, spice and new wood. The metaphor: ripe black fruits in an old leather basket, next to a glass of espresso. This wine is harmonious by now, with tannins kept well; full-bodied; matured nicely. 

 

 

Quite some USPs. Cheap with excellent value; dense planting(10,000 vines per hectare); using three royal grapes(Cabernet based); fresh and easy vintage; next to Chateau Beychevelle with a touch of St Julien; Rolland consulted; mysterious and good. 
 
This vintage gives some volume(13% abv) and straightforwardness on the palate, compared to the more silky and mineral-driven Cantermerle 2002.  Both chateaux are of 5th Growth and are close to St Julien. 
 
Scores are not good enough.  Hence, it is cheap for a decent claret.
