Winemakers Note

Etymologically Camensac means the path leading to the water in the old “gascon” dialect. Indeed the people of Saint-Laurent and those in the vicinity, would go to the “jales” either to get some water, or to board a boat bound to the big river. The Charterhouse dates from the 18th century. An old house had to be demolished so as to build the Charterhouse. The maps drawn by Cassini and  Belleyme, both 18th century cartographers, inevitably refer to a rather large house. Back in 1904 a family of wholesalers hailing from the north of France, the Cuveliers, bought the Charterhouse. Then in 1964, they sold it the a spanish family from Rioja, the Forners, who were quite interested in Bordeaux. Eventually in 2005, Jean Merlaut the uncle and his niece Céline Villars-Foubet, took over. The aim was to give back its sheen and prestigious image to the estate, which notoriety suffered as a result of its absence from the export markets. The assets are now gathered so that nothing will be left to chance to achieve their aim: a land and a savoirfaire understood and identified in the wine they are respectively taking care of: Gruaud-Larose and ChasseSpleen.
