Chablis: Domaine Christophe Camu Grand Cru 'Les Clos' 2018
A complex Grand Cru Chablis from the celebrated 'Les Clos' vineyard (just above the town of Chablis itself). It 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.
The Grand Cru 'Les Clos' is the haut de gamme at Domaine Christophe Camu - a rich, oppulent offering with subtle oaky notes interplaying with scents and flavours of russet apples and conference pears.

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.
