Philippe Cambie began his wine consulting career in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in 1998 and is now one of the most sought after enologist in the area. He works with over 20 estates including such greats as Les Cailloux, Vieux Donjon, Clos du Mont Olivet, Saint Prefert, Clos Saint Jean, Tardieu-Laurent, and many others. Halos de Jupiter is his own project in partnership with Michel Gassier, the proprietor of Château de Nages in the Costières de Nîmes. These are small production wines sourced from great vineyards that Cambie has unique access to because of his many relationships in the region.
