The Chambert estate was first planted in 1690. Now owned by Philippe Lejeune, it is farmed biodynamically. With consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt as part of the team, this top wine from the estate's best parcels is concentrated, dense and firmly tannic. The wine's young acidity and structure are in place so it just needs time to age. Drink from 2020.
