    THE STORY: For many years, Château Camensac, a 5ème Cru Classé property, remained in obscurity, producing wines well below Cru Classé standard. In 1965 it was bought by the Forner brothers, who also own the well-known Marques de Caceres bodega in Rioja. The two brothers replanted most of the 85 hectares of vineyards, the balance now being 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. They also renovated the cuverie and the cellars and hired the renowned Bordeaux oenologist Professor Emile Peynaud as a consultant. Camensac is now producing very high-quality, concentrated wines that emphasise elegance, finesse, harmony and balance, rather than power and brute force. They are very approachable when young but possess sufficient tannins and structure to continue improving for up to 10 years.
