JAMES SUCKLING: "Dark berries and flowers here with hints of nut shell. Medium-bodied. Linear tannins and a firm finish. Juicy."
DECANTER: "Supple and mouthwatering so you get texture and liveliness straight away. Tannins come in fairly quickly and give some restriction and tension to the palate, narrowing on the finish but keeping the fruit intensity. This has style, and good juiciness, but the liquorice, clove, saltiness and generally quite massy tannins take over. Has good potential, does feel well worked and there's precision to the overall frame. Tasted twice. Harvest 8-27 September."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: "Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2022 de Camensac is a little closed to start off, opening out to wafts of lavender, cedar chest, and pencil lead, giving way to a core of blackcurrant jelly and kirsch. The medium to full-bodied palate has a firm, grainy backbone and seamless freshness framing the generous black fruits, finishing with impressive length."
THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Currants, blackberries, cedar and tobacco leaf work perfectly here. The wine has ample fruit and freshness with a savory edge to the currant and cranberry finish. A year or two in the cellar will add even more to the wine. Drink from 2026-2038."
