Château Cambon was bought by Marcel Lapierre and Jean-Claude Chanudet in 1995 when they began the daunting job of restoring the estate from a bankrupt chateau in disrepair to a working winery and vineyard. The vines used to make this wine used to belong to Jules Chauvet, one of the first winemakers to promote sulphur-free wine production, and a mentor to Marcel Lapierre. Marie and Jean-Claude bought the tiny 2.5ha parcel in 2010. The wine is named Cuvée du Chat after Jean-Claude Chanudet whose nickname is ‘Le Chat’, or ‘the cat’.
Aromas of cherry, raspberry and slightly creamy blackcurrant. The palate is velvety and meaty, yet fresh with cherries, redcurrants and raspberries notes, hints of dried herbs and balanced acidity.
