Domaine Roses Camille 2011
The small estate was originally owned by the Rivière family who, after having had their relative imprisoned during World War II, offered the man’s wife and 15-year old son the opportunity to help with maintaining the estate in exchange for room and board. Following their passing, the childless Rivières actually bequeathed the entire estate to the young man who had spent years tending to and improving the property. This young man was named Robert Cazemajou, grandfather of the winery’s current winemaker who, together with his father, continues to increase the prestige of the minuscule property.
With a seductive nose of red and black crushed forest berries along with red currants, spicy wood, tobacco leaf, slightly bitter herbaceousness, dark chocolate, black truffles, earthy minerals and a dollop barnyard funk, the wine tantalizes as it slowly unfolds layer by layer.
