Normally this wine is produced from three separate parcels with vines up to 60 years old, however in 2016 Guillaume used grapes wherever he could harvest them from his 4ha of Savigny Villages. Layers of sweet cherry, cranberry and a touch of burnt herbs. A deliciously appealing wine.

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.
The bouquet is immediate, soft and feminine with a well-balanced, almost savoury quality. Layers of sweet cherry, cranberry and a touch of burnt herbs. There is fresness and minerality in abundance, supporting round and open red fruits that have a charming quality.
Try with beef fillet en croute.
Given the tiny yields in 2016, Guillaume used grapes from virtually all his parcels to produce this intensely concentratd wine. No new oak at all, the wine was vinifed and aged in 500lt demi-muids.
