Cabernet Sauvignon Chateau Camou 2018

MXN $790

Grape: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Region: Guadalupe Valley, Baja California, Mexico

You’ll taste/smell: for the Cabernet lovers this is the wine for you. Elegant and oaky (24 months in French oak!), refined full bodied Cab with tobacco, spices and ripe fruit notes, it has a long lingering finish but do let the wine breath as it will open and develop on the glass beautifully.

Good to have it with: a good steak never fails, pappardelle with veal ragu, grilled mushrooms.

Winery details: Chateau Camou

Château Camou was born from a dream, from a passion for wine and for the Mexican land. The engineer Fernando Favela Lozoya, together with his son, Ing. Fernando Favela Vara, investigated for a long time the best way to achieve his great desire to produce great wines and in 1993, he bought an old vineyard in Cañada del Trigo, in the northwest corner of the Valle de Guadalupe, Baja California, on land that was owned by the mission of Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe del Norte. In November 1994, the construction of a modern winery began, noble Bordeaux varieties were grafted, and the exciting work of producing great Mexican wines began.

La Cañada del Trigo is located at the northwest end of the Valle de Guadalupe. This small canyon is surrounded on three of its sides by mountain ranges; It has a tributary of water that comes from Tecate and feeds the two wells that are on the property. The soils are clayey-stony and do not have mineral concentrations as great as some other parts of the valley. For all this, our terroir constitutes a truly unique microclimate.

There are 21.5 hectares planted with Bordeaux varieties – cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, sauvignon blanc – as well as the great burgundy chardonnay grape; in addition to Chenin Blanc and Zinfandel grapes, which have become emblematic in our region. Additionally, Chateau Camou have started experimental projects with other varieties, such as Primitivo, and in 2017 Malbec, Nebbiolo, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier were planted.
