About The Wine
The Château Cambon project was born of a meeting of the minds of three of Beaujolais' most important personalities: Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Claude Chanudet and Joseph Chamonard.
The three decided to collaborate on a small, 13 hectare parcel of land planted in 1914, to further the reputation of Beaujolais' potential to produce fine wines a world beyond simple 'Nouveau' stylings that were known amongst the mainstream. The region has much to thanks these gentleman for, their foresight and vision, along with other notable contemporaries Guy Breton, Jean-Paul Thévenet, and Jean Foillard, revolutionised the perception of the region.
Today, Jean-Claude Chanudet and his wife Geneviève are the custodians of the project. They continue to craft the wines with the same ethos that infused the project from day one. Native yeasts are used in fermentation, the wines are aged in 200 year-old foudres, and bottled with little to no sulphur.
This is a majestic example of Brouilly. Full of fresh cut flowers, sweet cherry and plum flavours and a soft, sumptuous mouthfeel that will make Beaujolais lovers swoon.
