Chablis: Domaine Christophe Camu 2017
Classy, unoaked Chablis from a talented, sixth generation winemaker. It is light and supple enough to savor without accompaniment but will take all manner of crustacea and seafood in its stride.
As our long-standing Chablis suppliers, Martine & Patrick Guitton, entered retirement, we were pleased to see their son (and step-son) Christophe Camu incorporate their vine holdings into his successful domaine. Continuity is assured with this versatile, fresh, apple-scented, mid-weight Chablis.
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.

Domaine Christophe Camu
Father and son Christophe and Dylan Camu represent the 6th and 7th generations of their family to make wine in Chablis where they tend 13 hectares of vines encompassing Petit Chablis, Chablis, Premier and Grand Cru appellations. Over the past few years he has incorporated into his operation the vines of his mother and step-father (long-standing Yapp suppliers Martine & Patrick Guitton) as they moved into retirement.
