Bordeaux Superieur, Château Camarsac Vieilles Vignes
France – 2017
Tasting Note: Deep purple color. There are notes of red and black fruits and with undertones of sweet spices such as cinnamon and clove. Elegant tannin and a long finish.
Food Matching: Red and white meats as well as hard cheeses.
Vineyard: The vines average 30 years old and are located on soil types of clay and limestone. Thierry's father Lucien added to the original terroir by acquiring plots near the banks of the Dourdogne, which are high up on the slopes of Cabara and Saint Aubin de Branne where there are excellent limestone soils, covered with a layer of clay. Traditional viticultural methods are used along with machine harvest and strict sorting process.
Vinification: Fermentation in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Barrel-aged for 12 months in second hand French oak to compliment the fruit
Awards and Press News: 90/100 - Nice, ripe black fruit, a hint of chocolate and a pleasant balance of ripeness and supple tannin give this plenty of appeal. The firm finish could do with some time to mellow. Drink or hold. James Suckling - JamesSuckling.com, February 2019
