- Château Cambon was owned in the distant past by the Cambon family. Monsieur Cambon was an ambassador who had encouraged France to make peace with Britain. Over the years, with the many changes of ownership the vineyard had fallen into disrepair until Marcel Lapierre and Jean-Claude Chanudet decided to purchase it in 1995 and begin the daunting job of restoring the estate to a working winery and vineyard. The château is now owned and administered by Marcel’s wife, Marie, in association with Jean-Claude Chanudet. It comprises 13 hectares of Gamay vines located mainly in Morgon as well as a small parcel in Cotes du Py. The average age of the vines is 60 years.
The estate is farmed using green farming and organic methods. The vines used to make this wine are on average 80 years old.
- This is their 2022 Beaujolais Nouveau, a silky, sweet-fruited rendition with ripe raspberry and red cherry aromas, fine acidity and touches of spice on the finish.
