Chateau Camplay offers excellent, classic expressions of the region's wines, made to be enjoyed in their youth with relatively fruit-forward characteristics. They are generally not aged that long in barrel and offer easy-drinking personalities. A Bordeaux Supérieur, their wines consist of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. Chateau Camplay is crafted from a diverse array of terroirs that range from gravel, clay, sand and limestone. Like all of the world’s best wine growing appellations, the soil in Bordeaux is relatively poor, inhospitable soils that while not great for growing most types of agriculture, they are perfect for growing grapes. The type of soil and terroir is the most important factor that will determine the quality of the wine. The climate here is a temperate, Mediterranean, maritime climate and enjoys a unique climatic advantage, other famous, wine growing regions do not have.
In most of France, wines are named by their place of origin and not by the type of grape (with the exception of Alsace). Just like a red Burgundy is by law, always made of Pinot noir, a red Bordeaux is a blended wine composed mainly of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Depending on the laws of the village from which the grapes come, the conditions of the vintage and decisions of the winemaker, the blend can be further supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Petit Verdot and in rare cases, Carmenere. So popular and repeated has this mix of grape varieties become worldwide, that the term, Bordeaux Blend, refers to a wine blended in this style, regardless of origin.
