How to capture the essence of Benoit Camus; a man of few words, racing around the South of Beaujolais on a beat up motorbike, growing organic grapes with biodynamic practices, living amongst the vines in his very own "rolling castle" (read: trailer). Prior to bottling under his own labels, he was selling his grapes to friends like Philippe Jambon. His wines exude energy and a free-spirited character reminiscent of the man himself. Coming from the same parcel as Camus' much loved Vagabond, this is gamay from 60 year old vines on limestone soils. A signature black and brambly fruit character is balanced by a fine and lively acidity.
