Chateau Cambon Beaujolais Nouveau 2016 – Sold out!
Available from Thursday 17th November 2016
In 1995, the late, great, Marcel Lapierre, along with (the late) Joseph Chamonard, and Jean-Claude Chanudet and his wife Genevieve bought a neglected 13 ha vineyard between Morgon and Brouilly. The vineyard had been originally planted across three parcels in 1914 and soils are clay-granite and calcareous-sand. It lies outside the designation of the crus of Morgon and Brouilly, but the trio had a good idea of the potential of the terroir. They used the methods employed on their own estates: organic/biodynamic viticulture, natural yeasts, long, slow fermentations and aging in 200 year-old foudres and bottling with little or no SO2. The results are explosive fruitiness from the old vines (average age 60 years) and a touch of smokiness. Can’t wait to taste with some roast chicken or meatballs.
