Description

Les Grand Classiques or the essential Burgundy wines...
A reflection of their terroir, the village appellations and premier cru villages from this range are revealed. Their authenticity and their assertive character are renewed crop after crop thanks to a deep respect for the ancestral Burgundian expertise.

Appellation: Gevrey-Chambertin, a village appellation located on the Côte de Nuits, in the heart of Burgundy, produces exclusively red wines that can also be classified as 1er Cru or Grand Cru.

This premier cru takes its name from «CAMUS» meaning «Fields». Champonnet is a former agricultural land that was easy to cultivate when vines were not yet cultivated.

Soil: Clay-limestone

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir

Vinification: 

Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.

Vinification: The grapes are destemmed and then placed between 2 and 4 days in stainless steel vats for pre-fermentation maceration. The vinification is done in vats.

Ageing: The wine is ageing in oak barrels (François Frères & Billon) for a period of 12 to 14 months.

Tasting:  A garnet-red colour with intense reflections.
On the nose, a very gourmet aromatic palette, very fruity, accompanied by liquorice. A few touches of citrus fruits such as blood orange and peach bring a certain delicacy. Slightly toasted toasted notes appear.
Immediately the wine is very charming, silky, velvety, very harmonious, with a slight freshness as a support. Intense but delicate tannins.

Food pairing:  The perfect match will be made with meats with texture and taste such as a delicate game with fine flesh such as a doe fillet just roasted served rosé, accompanied by a strong game juice infused with blackcurrant berries. Also to be enjoyed with a roast pigeon served roasted in gingerbread crust, roasted white asparagus and juice.
