Dark and intense in colour is very fruit forward with a great elegance. The nose has refined ripe fruit aromas of blueberry and violet. On the palate, intense fruit flavours are melded with gentle notes of spice from French oak, balanced by a lively acidity and silky, well-rounded tannins.

Today the Chambert vineyard covers 65 hectares, of which 45 hectares are planted with 80% Malbec, 17% Merlot and 3% Chardonnay. The vines are located high up on the limestone ‘causse’, or plateau, that is regarded as the best part of the Cahors appellation. The limestone gives freshness and balance to the wines, while the red iron-oxide that cuts through the soils adds colour, richness and a powerful intensity.

Château de Chambert lies 30 kilometres west of the town of Cahors, between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Owned and run by Philippe Lejeune since 2007, with the additional support of consultant winemaker Stéphane Derenoncourt, the estate has garnered considerable attention in France. The estate gained organic certification in 2012 and was certified biodynamic at the end of 2015, making it the largest organic and biodynamic estate in Cahors.
