Our oenologists' opinion
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Domain and appellation
Château de Camarsac
Classified as an historic monument, the Château Camarsac stands out with its fort’s medieval architecture. Built 700 years ago, the domain thrives by preserving an ancestral terroir and savoir-faire.
- Terroir: Spread across the cities of Camarsac, Loupes, Saint Aubin de Branne, Cabara and Saint-Terre, the vineyard produces a broad selection of grape varieties thanks to its geologic diversity. The vines lay on a clay-limestone, clay-silt, clay-gravel, and silt soils with merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc for main grape varieties.
- Viticulture: The vieilles vignes growth is issued from vines that are 20 years old in average.
- Vinification: Managed by Thierry Lurton, the domain seeks to minimize its carbon footprint. The Château has, as an example, a vat covered with photovoltaic since 2012. The wine ferments for 8 months in stainless steel tanks and 6 months in oak barrels.
Grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot
- Cabernet Sauvignon : 35%
- Merlot : 65%
