The CAMU family has exploited its 13 hectare holding in the famous terroir of Chablis for 7 generations and applies all its accrued wisdom and experience to the production of some very fine wines, which are renowned for ageing. They have won many accolades over the years.
Among the elite of the world's fine wines, CHABLIS can be defined as a dry, crisp, fruity, mineral, white wine. It comes exclusively from the Chardonnay grape variety, the only one permitted, which is cultivated on calcareous soils with lots of clay, known as "Kimmeridge". This, along with the continental climate of hot summers and very cold winters, helps the vines to assimilate all sorts of nuances, especially mineral ones.
Camu produce all four of the different types of Chablis: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru (Beauroy, Cote de Lechet and Montmains) and Chablis Grand Cru (Les Clos)
The town of Chablis produces white wines in “kimmeridge” clay soils in northern Burgundy. The 6th generation of the Camu family controls a domaine of 13 hectares here and are well respected producers who offer a range of fine quality wines
