Ever more rigorous plot selection and vinification adapted to the grapes result in a fresh, seductive wine, in the same style as the label: elegant, modern, refined and with a touch of originality that breaks with the traditional image of Bordeaux’s Grands Vins. Terroir The style of Camensac’s wines is explained by the geographical location and the micro-climate, with mild winters and hot summers but which is also oceanic, favouring healthy growth and well- ripened grapes, combined with a deep gravel terroir, brought by the river (Villafranchian gravel as in Pessac-Léognan and Gunzian gravel as in the St Julien appellation). Harvest date (2015 Vintage) Merlot: from September the 21st to October the 9th 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon: From October the 5th to 9th 2015 Weather Along winter, a few cold and frosted days, with plentiful rainfalls in December and January. June is suddenly very warm. The flower evolves nicely. July is heatwave, vine is tested. August gives it some respite. Its rainfalls at the beginning of the month are particularly timely for veraison. September is beautiful. The harvest begins later. We escape some heavy storms. Merlot comes calmly, ripe and fruity. Temperatures are low and night very cold. Cabernet sauvignon are affected. Rainfalls revive its but warm nights and days worried. The atmosphere is concerned but the result pleasing. Vinification Destemming and crushing Alcoholic fermentation at 28°C (about 6 days) followed by maceration (about 3 weeks) Daily pumping over and / or punching down Run-off and pressing (pneumatic press) Transfer to barrels Malolactic fermentation in barrels Ageing in French oak barrels for 14 to 18 months (60% new barrels) Regular topping up and racking Fining with egg white and a final racking before bottling.
