2009 Chateau de Camensac, Haut-Medoc, France

Wine Notes

Fifth Growth. Cinquieme Grand Cru Classe in 1855. By St-Laurent-et-Benon

Tasting note: Ruby-red with garnet highlights. Focused nose of red fruits with spicy, peppery oak. Full, warm entry leading into a clean, quite firm and slightly lean middle palate. Well-made and successful yet lacking real elegance. (12-Mar-2012) [Gilbert & Gaillard]

Tasting note: Plums, cherries, blackberries. Austere style which requires one to search through the tannins to find dark berry fruit. It is a modest wine with fairly astringent tannins and moderate length. Tasted in: Bordeaux, France. Maturity: Drink. (01-Mar-2010) [Asian Palate Jeannie Cho Lee]

Grape Variety

A Bordeaux Blend, at its most basic, is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. The phrase, which seems to have originated with British wine merchants in the 19th Century, relates as much to wines made from the blend as to the grape variety combination itself (© Copyright material, Far from being an officially defined or legal term, it is almost never used for wine-labeling purposes (although it occasionally appears on back labels). Its equivalent in the United States is Meritage, which is not only legally defined, but also a registered trademark.
