Chateau Cambon – Beaujolais
It originated as a side project by Jules Chauvet’s pupils Marcel Lapierre and Joseph Chamonard, They purchased a 13ha parcel planted in 1914, outside of the cru status but that showed great potential. It is planted on argile-granite and calcareous-sand. Since Marcel’s death Marie Lapierre now vinifies the Chateau Cambon cuvée while Jean-Claude Chanudet took over the “Cuvée du Chat”.
