April 30, 2013 - Delicate blackcurrant leaf nose, earthy undergrowth; nice palate, smooth elegant and balanced and with good fruit. Lovely charming mature claret.

March 2, 2012 - Colour: almost black, purple on the rim.
Nose: Decent but nice with hints of cherry pie
Tasting: Still well enjoyable. Clearly recognizable acidity and also some adstringency. Dark berries and again cherries. Finish not too long.
Drink now. Will probably no more improve.

December 29, 2009 - Drunk 2 bottles of this wine with a rib of beef. Decanted both bottles about 2 hours before we ate and was pretty harsh on the nose before decanting. After the 2 hours was a lovely open flavour of red fruit and very smooth to drink. Enjoyed every last drop. Was a very good wine, would not say outstanding but still a pleasure and will open the remaining bottles over the next few months as think it has probably just peaked.

November 6, 2007 - A very pleasant earthy nose mixed with black currant.
On the attack, leather and sour raspberries.
The mid-palate is smooth and a bit sour.
The finish is adequate and dry.
Over all a nice balanced old world wine at $29.
It lacks the X factor to make it great.

(Chateau Camensac Haut-Médoc) Plenty of youthful colour here. Quite classic on the nose, with an abundance of fine, crunchy blackcurrant fruit with a healthy dose of stony minerals. The palate has balance, medium body and a nice tannic backbone. Plenty more of that stylish mineral fruit as well. Plenty of pleasure here, for drinking now and over the next five years.
