Château Cambon was originally purchased by Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Claude Chanudet, and Joseph Chamonard. Today, Chanudet runs the estate with his wife Geneviève. The vineyards were planted in 1914 and are farmed with organic and biodynamic methods. Fruit for the Brouilly bottling are hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard. Only native yeasts are used during fermentation The wine undergoes cabonic maceration for 10-15 days and the wine is aged 6-9 months in oak. Bottled with little to no sulfur additions, this Gamay is structured and serious while also being juicy and plush. Aromas of dried cherries and earthy florals intermingle with notes of sweet spices.
