Domaine Camus Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin 2016
Domaine Camus Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin is made via old school methods of vinification. Makes a grand appearance with its deer red colour and brown highlights. The nose offers pure aromas of cherry and strawberry. The silky palate possesses mild tannins and a great structure.
100% Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from the domaine's 18 hectares of vineyards, of which two-thirds are Grand Cru and one-third are Village. The vines are grown with biodynamic practices in clay-limetsone based soils. The Gevrey-Chambertin area experiences a semi-continental climate with variations of temperatures.
Hand-picking of the fruit, traditional vinification, then 14–18 months ageing in oak barrels. No filtering before bottling, so there is often sediment in these flavourful wines.
