    Did you know ?
    This premier cru takes its name from «CAMUS» meaning «Fields». Champonnet is a former agricultural land that was easy to cultivate when vines were not yet cultivated.

    Ageing: The wine is ageing in oak barrels (François Frères & Billon) for a period of 12 to 14 months.

  • Tasting notes

    A garnet-red colour with intense reflections.
    On the nose, a very gourmet aromatic palette, very fruity, accompanied by liquorice. A few touches of citrus fruits such as blood orange and peach bring a certain delicacy. Slightly toasted toasted notes appear.
    Immediately the wine is very charming, silky, velvety, very harmonious, with a slight freshness as a support. Intense but delicate tannins.

  • Food pairing

    The perfect match will be made with meats with texture and taste such as a delicate game with fine flesh such as a doe fillet just roasted served rosé, accompanied by a strong game juice infused with blackcurrant berries. Also to be enjoyed with a roast pigeon served roasted in gingerbread crust, roasted white asparagus and juice.
