    About

    Château de Camensac is classified as a fifth growth under the great Bordeaux classification of 1855, which was undertaken by the French government to try and bring some order to the fragmented structure and way in which the various Château presented themselves. However, it is now somewhat flawed as it was based solely on price and, since 1855, few wines have been added or reclassified, yet some fourth and fifth growths (there are five categories or growths), far outperform wines with higher classifications and are today much more expensive.

    Château de Camensac is neighbour with some of the best estates in Saint Julien including Chateau Château Beychevelle and Château Lagrange. Because it falls just outside the boundary for Saint Julien however, it cannot call itself a Saint Julien, meaning it is classified as a Haut Médoc. Possible because of this, it has always been a high quality, affordable Bordeaux.
