The opinion of the sommelier

Château de Chambert is one of those famous estates that has a strong positive impact on the reputation of their appellation. One of the reasons why it’s famous is because the soil never got a drop of chemical. It has been given up for a few decades and then immediately grown in biodynamics. The 2012 vintage has improved with age : the wine is powerful and velvety in the mouth with a very beautiful dense and fleshy structure. 

 

Terroir

Château de Chambert enjoys a very particular soil of limestone and red clay. Limestone brings moisture and minerals to the vine. The red clay, which colour is the result of a high concentration of iron in the ground, gives the wine its power and aromas of spicy black fruits.

lecepage Grape variety

Malbec is the historical grape of Cahors. It brings to the appellation its tannic and powerful character, its aromas of plum and tobacco and has a good capacity for ageing. Its name of Black Wine abroad comes from its deep and very dark colour.

lemillesime Vintage

The year 2012 was not easy for the winegrowers of the region. The warm winter was followed by a rainy spring and the humid vineyards were attacked by mildew and powdery mildew, two fungi that damage the grapes. But Chambert is driven biodynamically, and thanks to a clever viticulture, it was possible to harvest little but well : the grapes were concentrated and healthy ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Philippe Lejeune, owner of the vineyard, has chosen a fully organic and biodynamic approach, and preserves biodiversity of the vineyard by planting other crops and raising cows and black pigs. Accompanied by Stéphane Derenoncourt, a famous oenologist from Bordeaux, they produce terroir wines with remarkable finesse.
