Ever since Camille's first vintage in 2013, it's a wine that we've bought every bottle available to us.
There's something about how Camille combines deliciousness with a depth of complexity that made us immediate fans. It's a difficult wine to be a fan of - it is sourced from a 1ha plot.
Camille comes from the Côte du Py vineyard, one of Beaujolais' best and, thanks to Foillard, most famous sites. Lapierre lays bare all of the class that Côte du Py is capable of. It delivers the site's spiced, wild cherry signature with captivating detail and vividness.
One of the fascinating qualities of the 2018 vintage in Beaujolais is how it combines ripeness with freshness and acidity. The 2018s manage a level of freshness that keeps the wines lively and gulpable.
The 2018 Camille offers up beautiful aromatics and textural appeal. The wine underscores what so often makes Lapierre compelling in warmer vintages. You get more punch and an extra dimension of complexity that works nicely with Lapierre's purity and lively drinkability.
It probably goes without saying that quantities are very limited. Camille is very hard to find. If you went looking around for the wine, you'd only find it in a few other places. This will almost certainly disappear.
