    Domaine Camu Vezelay, France
    The domaine Camu has vineyards extending over 14 hectares planted with both the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. The lower harvest rate, associated with the traditional vinification process of this area, allows the wine to express to the greatest advantage, the terroir. The Bourgogne Vézelay is a fruity wine full of the aromas of citrus fruit and white flowers. Our domaine, owns, notably, a parcel of vines called “Le Clos Du” (after the Clos du Duc) which belonged to the Duke of Bourgogne. This south facing parcel planted with older vines produces a great quality wine.

    The presence of vines in Vézelay goes back to the Roman times. During the XI century the Abbey in Vézelay became a well-known centre of pilgrimage and was the starting point of the crusade undertaken by Saint Jacques de Compostelle. Owned by the Dukes of Bourgogne, the vineyards of Vézelay have known many periods of splendour. The basilica dedicated to Saint Madeleine which has crowned the top of the mount since 1145 has been declared a monument of great historical importance by UNESCO since 1979. Today the vineyards extend to around 100 hectares and are located in the villages of Asquin, Tharoiseau, Saint Père and Vézelay. The two principal grape varieties are the Chardonnay for the white wines and Pinot Noir for the reds. The vineyards are South East to South West facing on limestone from the Jurassique age.

    A legendary wine region setting the benchmark for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay worldwide, Burgundy is a perennial favorite of many wine lovers. While the concept of ‘terroir’ reigns supreme here—soil type, elevation and angle of each slope—this is a region firmly rooted in tradition. Because of the Napoleonic Code requiring equal distribution of property and land among all heirs, vineyard ownership in Burgundy is extremely fragmented, with some growers responsible for just one or two rows of vines. This system has led to the predominance of the "negociant"—a merchant who purchases fruit from many different growers to vinify and bottle together.

    Burgundy’s cool, continental climate and Jurassic limestone soils are perfect for the production of elegant, savory and mineral-driven Chardonnay and Pinot Noir with plenty of acidity. Vintage variation is of particular importance here, as weather conditions can be variable and unpredictable. In some years spring frost and hail must be overcome.

    The Côte d’Or, a long and narrow escarpment, forms the heart of the region, split into the Côte de Nuits to the north and the Côte de Beaune to the south. The former is home to many of the world’s finest Pinot Noir wines, while Chardonnay plays a much more prominent role in the latter, though outstanding red and white are produced throughout. Other key appellations include the Côte Chalonnaise, home to great value Pinot Noir and sparkling Crémant de Bourgogne. The Mâconnais produces soft and round, value-driven Chardonnay while Chablis, the northernmost region of Burgundy, is a paradise for any lover of bright, acid-driven and often age-worthy versions of the grape.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
