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.

Tasting Notes

Fermented in 100% stainless steel with no oak intervention at all. Smoky, stylish and complex this is quite serious with hints of gunflint interwoven with the ripe stony fruit.

Food Matches

Carpaccio of scallops with truffle olive oil and Balsamic vinegar on a bed of mixed green salads.
