A complex Grand Cru Chablis with from the celebrated Les Clos vineyard (just above the town of Chablis itself) that has a pale straw colour and delicate floral aromas leading to a classic ‘nervy’ palate of gun-flint mineral tastes over ripe orchard fruit underscored by a fine acidity and a long, dry, elegant finish.
- Bottle £37.95
- Bottle Case £455.40
Reliable, unoaked Chablis from a talented, sixth generation winemaker.
- Half Bottle £8.75
- Half Bottle Case £210.00
Christophe Camu’s generic Chablis is 'bien classique'. Made from pure Chardonnay grown on free-draining, calciferous soil, it has a limpid, golden-green hue, green apple aromas and fresh, fruit-laden palate underscored by a nervy minerality.
- Bottle £15.95
- Bottle Case £191.40
Ratcheting up a gear in rank (and, bien sur, price) from the generic Chablis is Christophe’s 'Premier Cru' bottling from the Côte de Léchet climat.
A top quality Chablis with inviting brioche, vanilla and wild flower scents and a weightier, more viscous palate than its junior sibling.
- Bottle £20.75
- Bottle Case £249.00
Just before last year’s wine list went to press we received news that we had been anticipating for quite some time – Patrice and Martine Guitton, our long-serving suppliers in Chablis, had finally taken full retirement and passed the last of their vine-holdings over to Martine’s son Christophe Camu. This made for a fairly seamless transition as we have known Christophe for many years and he is a gifted wine-maker in his own right. He is a sixth-generation vigneron and, unlike many of his contemporaries, is a native of the town of Chablis itself. He currently tends 8 hectares of vines and has vineholdings in all 4 qualitative classifications – Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru and Chablis Grand Cru.
