Château de Camensac probably has one of the finest terroir in Haut-Médoc, right on the border with Saint-Julien. 2010 was a vintage of an exceptional quality, and so is Camensac: a dark colour, flavours of ripe black fruit and black pepper, it is beautifully structured on the palate with subtle tannins and a long finish. An elegant wine which will be loved by women.

What experts say  
  
16.5 - "Intense and juicy with a savoury edge. Good balance though a little spindly. Quite rich and velvety textured."
  
  89-91 - "Possibly the finest Camensac I have tasted, the dense purple-colored 2010 offers loads of fruit (black currants and blackberries) intermixed with subtle notions of smoke, graphite and oak. Medium to full-bodied and rich, it is capable of lasting 15 or more years. It could turn out to be a sleeper of the vintage."  
  16.5 - "Finely expressed Cabernet fruit, good clarity and depth, quite tight now but will expand to fill its Cru Classé potential, a confirmation of the very recent improvement. Drink 2016-26."  
  88 - "This has a brambly, chewy feel, with dark currant and steeped fig notes allied to a smoldering tobacco edge on the finish. Pleasantly rustic, boosted by the oomph of the vintage."  
  15.5 - "For a big pleasure and no complex, this wine offers a lot of freshness."  
  
90 - "This has weight, dark tannins, very taut and mineral. Spice comes from the wood."
