Bourgogne

Domaine Camu Frères 2017

€450 Bottle of 10cl

Once belonging to the Dukes of Burgundy, the vineyards of Vézelay have existed since Gallo-Roman times. Made exclusively from Pinot Noir, this red Burgundy has a ruby color and a pale pink rim, with a delicate nose of raspberry and kirsch aromas. On the palate, the wine is light and supple with persistent flavors. This is a very accessible Burgundy that will go nicely with fish

Winemaker

Baron Patrick de Ladoucette

This 15-hectare estate at the foot of the ‘Colline Eternelle’ was bought by the Camu brothers in 1999 then taken over by the Baron Patrick de Ladoucette in 2008. In order to produce fruity, terroir-driven wines that express the full potential of the Vézelay area, he keeps yields low and employs traditional winemaking methods. The Jurassic limestone vineyard slopes are fully south-facing and give excellent quality wines.
