Beaujolais, France

Benoit Camus

Vagabond 2019



Benoit is a man of rare energy and this Gamay certainly follows suit. Having spent time among the vines since he was a teenager, he now farms four hectares in the south of Beaujolais. Planted over a complex and varied terroir, there is a luminous quality to the cherry-toned fruit and a distinct mineral imprint from the limestone that offers refreshment in spades. Enjoyed chilled with a nice piece of saucisson or a good hunk of cheese, there are few wines better suited to a picnic.
