Beautiful shiny dark ruby color. A discreet nose that reveals aromatic notes of blackcurrant blossoms and narcissus after aeration. The subtle palate is fine and concentrated at the same time. An atypical Beaune, this wine is concentrated and fluid.
This appellation of controlled origin dates back to 1937. Fourteen villages from the Côte de Beaune make up this “Côte de Beaune-Villages” appellation: Auxey-Duresses, Chassagne-Montrachet, Chorey-les-Beaune, Savigny-lesBeaune, Meursault, Monthelie, Pernand-Vergelesses, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint Aubin, Saint-Romain, Santenay, Ladoix-Serrigny, les Maranges and Remigny. However, four villages are not included: Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard and Volnay.
Maison Champy is the oldest wine company in Burgundy from 1720. The winery, which has been declared a historic monument by UNESCO, was designed by the famed architect, Gustave Eiffel. It was at Maison Champy where renowned scientist, Louis Pasteur set up a laboratory and developed the pasteurization method.
Maison Champy owns 52 acres of vineyards, including holdings in Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru, Clos de Bully in Pernand-Vergelessess, and Beaune 1er Cru Aux Cras. These prized vineyards, among others owned by Champy, are farmed organically in order to showcase the true character of the terroir in the wines.
Champy has worked for many years with the goal of crafting the best possible expression of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from each unique terroir.
