Domaine Camus-Bruchon

 

Lucien Camus is one of the rising stars in the Côte de Beaune, making wine from vineyard holdings in Savigny-Les-Beaune, Pommard and Beaune.  While many of the more famous names in the area have caused a stir by trying one experimental technique after another in the wine-making process, Camus has been concentrating on his vineyards.  He firmly believes that one can only make wine as good as the grapes that you grow, and that if you have to play around too much in the fermentation room trying to make a wine taste a certain way, then you have not done your job in the fields.  In fact, when we visit him on a rainy day, he seems to enjoy spending time in the cellar, but if it’s sunny out, you can sense that he’d rather be out tending his vines.  His vines are old (averaging at least 35 years) and in some cases very old (the 95 years old “Grands Liards” vineyard).  He uses approximately 15% new oak following an extended maceration and fermentation time of at least 18 days.  The wines are bottled unfiltered to preserve the natural balance of fruit and tannins.
