Cedar, tobacco, spice, herbs and peppery, red currants combine on the nose and chewy palate. The palate, with its savory edge, tobacco and chewy fruit offers a lot of lift and vibrancy in the finish. Drink from 2025-2040.

Spicy, earthy, red fruits, tobacco leaf and cedar are what you initially notice. From there, the medium-bodied wine comes through with sweet, chewy, ripe, bright crunchy red fruits with soft tannins in the mid-palate and in the finish. You should be able to enjoy this with just a few years in the cellar. 88-90 Pts

Medium-bodied, soft, fresh and fruity, with a peppery accent to the sweet, ripe, currants and herbs, with a dab of chocolate in the endnote. You can enjoy this with ease on release and over the next decade or longer. Drink from 2022-2032.

Much better in the bottle than in the barrel, the wine is medium bodied, with a cedar, tobacco and red currant profile. Forward, soft, fresh, fruity and with a classic lean to its chewy, spicy red fruit finish. This is best vintage of Chateau de Camensac I have ever tasted.

One of the more obscure classified growths, the 2009 is an open, easy to drink wine with an oak, dark cherry, earth and herb perfume. Medium bodied, with some rusticity to the tannins, this should be better with a few more years of age.
