  HAUT MEDOC Château de Camensac 2001 Haut Médoc 12 Drink 2007-2014 Good colour, but nasty green, unripe aromas. Very dry and lean. Nov : The wine seems to have taken on a bit of flesh in bottle. Healthy crimson. Blackberry scents with some softness and a spine of acidity. Lots of tannin, not pure but an ok drink from bottle. 14.5 Drink 2006-2015 Château Beaumont 2001 Haut Médoc 13 Drink 2005-2012 Lightish colour. Light, sweet and very simple. Château Lamarque 2001 Haut Médoc 14 Drink 2006-2012 Very, very deep crimson. Thick. Very, very dry....
