Château de Chamilly
Château de Chamilly stands in the heart of a green valley situated to the north of the Côte Chalonnaise, 20 minutes south of Beaune. It was built during the 17th century by Noël Bouton (lieutenant general of the armies of King Louis XIV, Governor of Strasbourg and Marquis of Chamilly), on the foundations of a 14th century fortified farm. The Desfontaine family bought it, along with the surrounding land, at the beginning of the 19th century. Taken with the buildings, the land and the incomparable lifestyle, the Desfontaine family continually restore and develop the surroundings.
Produced from 50 year old vines, planted on south-east facing vineyards with iron rich soils, this wine is aged in 20% new oak for 12 months oak with a further 6 months in stainless steel tank.
An extremely aromatic bouquet with notes of ripe black cherries and a hint of hedgerow. The palate is voluptuous, rich and finely textured with bramble and damson fruits and an underlying cherry stone freshness. What a lovely wine!
