“Winter and early spring are rainy
May and June are scorching and very dry
The plant redoubles vigor
The flower goes well appreciating this dry weather
July is opportunely the coolest for 30 years
August is divided between the great and the dark
The great humidity and the heat give cause for anxiety, threatening to rot
Wind and sun inaugurate the harvest
The tension drops
With maturity advancing at the forefront with rot, the harvesting of the few contaminated grapes, the tannins will go all the way to quality.
“The 2010 La Croft Camensac is adorned with a beautiful deep red color with purple reflections shiny.
The nose of ripe and smooth with dark fruit with wooden buttons.
The palate is soft and savory, fruity finish is remarkable.
The assistance of the famous consultant oenologist Michel Rolland (incidentally winemaker himself!) Which closely follows the destiny of Camensac, is a valuable accompaniment. His perfect knowledge of the vineyard, its well-known requirement of perfect ripeness are the guarantee of quality of a wine that is ever vigilant.”

The assembly is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot Le Haut Médoc is located upstream of the estuary of the Gironde. The important composition of the soil in serious incentive to grow Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines are concentrated with a tannic structure such that it takes a breeding at least 6 months. His nose is in his youth red and black fruit flavors to evolve towards spices and vanilla more or less depending on breeding. The Top Médocs are great wines for aging. The 2009 vintage is definitely a very good vintage. The sunny climate of the summer until the end of September has fostered a good harvest maturity. The balance between tannins, alcohol and acidity is remarkable. Success is general in all appellations. A great year that we can start to enjoy and that will support good years of aging.”
Spicy wine, bright and full-bodied, typical Bordeaux nose of black currants, blackberries, casis, freshly roasted coffee and earthy tones. In the mouth, powerful and full of fresh smooth tones of black fruits such as blackberries, black currants and bay, with a strong aftertaste.
