“Named after Camille and Mathieu’s grandfather, Cuvée Camille comes from a 1 ha plot in La Roche du Py, a lieu-dit within the famous Côte du Py climate where the soil is very thin, and the roots plunge straight into the granitic rock. Here the 80-100 years old vines yield a wine that is deep and concentrated in 2020, with ripe fruit, wild herbs, and spices, it’s rich and complex with an almost sudiste quality and beautiful bitters which lend freshness and peps to the finish. Drink now to 2027.”
