2020 Domaine Camus-Bruchon
‘Camus’s 2020s demonstrated fine fresh fruit and impressive terroir expression’
‘Readers who don’t know this estate should give it serious consideration’
We are delighted this morning to release the 2020s from another excellent new addition to our Burgundy offer, Domaine Camus-Bruchon in Savigny-lès-Beaune.
Guillaume Camus is a rising star in the Côte de Beaune and his stunning 2020s, produced from exceptionally old vines, impressed us from the very beginning. Despite picking early, on the 25th of August, the fruit came in between just 13.0 and 13.6%. To avoid over extraction, temperatures were kept low during fermentation, and during élevage large 500 litre oak barrels were used to maintain the purity of the fruit. Showing great elegance and complexity with silky textures, the 2020s are arguably even better than the 2019s which received rave reviews.
As Neal Martin says, these wines are ‘still a bit under the radar as far as I am concerned’. As such they offer great value for money. If you enjoy beautifully balanced and classically styled red Burgundies with good ageing potential, these wines come with our highest recommendation. Please contact us as soon as possible to secure an allocation.
We have a few spaces left at our 2020 Burgundy tasting on 13th January at the National Liberal Club, 1 Whitehall Place, London. We will be showing wines from 23 different producers (75 wines), so please do join us.
These wines are offered en primeur subject to availability. Shipment in the Autumn of 2022.
