This domaine has its origins in the early 18th century, but was most recently run (until his death in 2017) by the charming Luc Camus. Luc's own father died when Luc was only 12 in 1961 and Luc took the reins of the domaine in 1972. This is a winery that, in a more celebrated commune, would rightly be very famous. It is just that their home commune of Savigny is so overlooked: shame, as it is to where the cognoscenti go for a proper bargain. Camus-Bruchon is now run by Guillaume, Luc's son, who works c. 8 hectares of vines in Savigny, Beaune, Chorey and Pommard. The Savignys, from exceptionally old vines, are some of the finest wines of the appellation.
N.B. Vines here were planted in 1913 and 1922. Aromas are a touch smoky, of nutty red fruit aromas with nicely fresh notes of spice. Entry is fluid and cool, then gathers its spiced, nutty structure. This is a dark and wild wine, with upright, fresh, very rocky minerality within and a plum tang about it. Very long to a confident, elegant, dense and earthy death. Only old vines can produce something this profoundly lovely. Bowes Wine original note
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
