About the Producer
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 from Neal Martin (Vinous). They offer great value and we are delighted to be offering them to you for the first time.
