Christophe Camu and his son Dylan are the 6th and 7th generation winemakers at this hugely under-the-radar domaine. Together, they tend 8 hectares of vines and have holdings in all 4 qualitative classifications from Petit Chablis to Grand Cru. Their newly re-labelled 2020 vintage is much anticipated after a superb 2019.
Their classically-styled 'Villages' Chablis is grown on free-draining, calciferous soils and has a limpid, golden-green hue, crisp green apple aromas and fresh, fruit-laden palate underscored by a nervy minerality. It is light and supple enough to savour without accompaniment but will take all manner of crustacean and seafood in its stride.
A superb Premier Cru 'Beauroy' from the south-east facing escarpment to the north-west of the town is brimming with classic 'wet pebble' minerality, rich fruit and a long, dry finish. It is more than worth the extra investment and will pair well with a variety of fish or poultry in creamy sauces.
The prized 'les Clos' vineyard just north of the town is widely regarded as the greatest of all seven Grand Cru sites in Chablis and the Camus' offering is a superb example. It has an intense bouquet of crushed rocks, citrus peel and buttered toast followed by a complex, tense, palate and an exceptionally long finish. It will be at its best with five or more years bottle age but will give genuine pleasure in the short-term following an hour or more in decanter. Corn-fed roast chicken or turbot cooked on the bone would be great accompanying dishes.
