Description Château de Camensac 2016.
It boasts a superb, brilliant, limpid garnet color. On the first nose, scents of ripe, almost jammy black fruit appear, then come depth thanks to notes of tonka bean and sweet spices. The palate is delicious, with a clean attack and full body. The finesse of the tannic structure and subtle tension bring balance and refinement. Aromatically, the fruit expresses itself with intensity and harmonizes magnificently with a well-worked woody side. The finish is greedy and persistent, leaving a pleasant sensation on the palate.
