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. The 25ha property is now in the hands of Véronique Desfontaine, and is managed
by her two sons, Arnaud and Xavier.
A fruit packed wine of great purity. Fermented in 100% stainless steel with no oak intervention at all, so there is an intriguing smokiness to the bouquet. The palate is rich and fat. Finely balanced with a lovely underlying nuttiness and a hint of gunflint on the finish.
