This wine is named after Guillaume’s Great, Great Grandmother. Produced from 4 separate parcels – Dessus Les Vermots, Les Goudelettes, Clos des Pointes and Aux Champs des Pruniers. Very small yields this year at Domain Camus-Bruchon, with only 15hl/ha of this cuvee produced. Only a smattering of 10% new oak, with 10% 1 year old barrels. A third of the cuvee was aged in large 500lt barrels.

Domaine Camus-Bruchon

Guillaume Camus of Domaine Camus-Bruchon is one of the very finest red winemakers in the Côte de Beaune. Located in the village of Savigny-les-Beaune, just to the north of Beaune proper, the Camus fashion beautifully balanced, deep and complex wines that are the epitome of what great Burgundy is all about. The family has a lovely spread of top vineyards in Savigny-les-Beaune (both superb premier crus and a handful of top village wine parcels planted with very old pinot noir vines), as well as a bit of premier cru in Beaune and Pommard as well.
Fresh black fruits on the nose, overt and very concentrated. The palate is super concentrated, opulent with crunchy black cherry fruits dominating, finely tuned tannins and a freshness that typifies the vintage, giving a perfect balance. This appellation offers a great introduction to Red Burgundy at an affordable price.
Try with beef fillet en croute.
