I don’t drink much Bordeaux, not sure why. Maybe the choices are a bit overwhelming for me 🤷‍♀️ this one is medium bodied, has smooth tannins, not much fruit.

A nice and simple Merlot blend from Bordeaux.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Tangy finish with soft tannins.

Still young and needs another 2 years to mature properly.

A blend of 65% Merlot and 35% Cabernet Sauvignon.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

84 points.

Red cherry, oak, and strict tannins. This is a light and simple Bordeaux. Right bank. Predominantly merlot, cab blend. Nothing special but not horrible.

Solid wine for the price. Expressive nose with decent structure and mid-length finish. Cherry notes that evolve into some baking spices. Soft tannins.

Smells like peppered cherry pie, fresh and oozing.

The wine comes on with ease, ripe rainier cherries, fruit pithe, really ripe black plum.
Another great everyday Bordeaux, not too thick, or thin. Good mouthfeel, and dusty tannins.

Plus, it really does go well with the kitchen paint..
Not sure why the low marks.

Tasted this at s big box wine store. Simple wine, Dark red with jammy fruit aromas, slight spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry fruit, some sweetness, with firm tannins ok balance, medium finish ending with spice notes. I was generous with my comments but I would pass. Tasting Sample.

Needs room to breath. It's got a wonderful taste. Paired well with blue cheese and honeycomb dessert.

It smells like fancy cheese! Like aged and shit.

Definitely a bad choice for mulled wine - but good on its own especially at the price. I’d recommend letting it open for about 5 hours before drinking.

Some unprovocative wood, muddled berries, really tight. I think it’s a good entry level Bordeaux for some novices that could get wrecked by some bigger wines from the area.

2015 vintage. Owned by another Lurton (in this case Thierry), Camarsac is a classified historical castle in the Entre-Deux-Mers region. This Bordeaux Supérieur is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Another nice value in Bordeaux. Give it 15 minutes in the glas and you will enjoy a charming, well-balanced uncomplicated Bordeaux that delivers for the price (8,90 euro). Abv. 13,5 %.
