MARIE LAPIERRE & JEAN-CLAUDE CHANUDET, Château Cambon
Beaujolais-Villages Nouveau 2020
Château Cambon, a project started by three friends: the late Marcel Lapierre and Joseph Chamonard with Jean-Claude Chanudet (and his wife Geneviève). Today, the estate is run by Marie Lapierre (Marcel's wife) and J.C Chanudet. We love the quirky label, the amazing juice in the bottle and just about everything that comes out of Marie and Jean-Claude's cellars.
Quick words on Beaujolais Nouveau:
Traditionally Beaujolais Nouveau Day is celebrated in France and all over the World on the third Thursday in November, parties and events are held to celebrate the first wine of the season. Under French law, the wine cannot be sold before 12:01 a.m on that day,
The ‘Nouveau’ we propose are straight from the cellars of a new wave of small producers who farm their land sustainably, make wines without hard manipulations nor additives. The results are juicy, fun-filled, joyous and honest wines, that capture the pure aromas of the newly harvested Gamay grapes.
