DOMAINE BORIS CHAMPY

Nantoux, Burgundy

Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Blanc
"Elevation 382"

Bourgogne, Hautes-Côtes de Beaune AOC

Chardonnay

This is the signature Chardonnay of the estate that highlights high altitude plantings in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. A classic style with all the freshness of rocky limestone soils with a clean and vibrant nose of citrus and cut flowers, notes of honeycomb and lemon balm. The palate is focused with body and freshness followed by a touch of oak in a layered finish.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The Hautes Côtes de Beaune is more respected with each passing vintage. With global warming on the rise, and several of the hottest years on record being recently recorded, these higher elevations offer a more balanced ripening season than ever before. Likewise, the biodynamic farming, devotion to green space, and cover crops add additional support to this changing ecosystem.

Bourgogne Aligoté Doré
"Sélection Massale"

Bourgogne Aligoté AOC

Aligote

The modern world has only glimpsed the surface of potential for the Aligoté grape. We are in a renaissance of rediscovery. This bottling takes this journey one step further with neutral oak aging to add texture and depth to these very old vines. The wine develops with complex aromas of citrus fruits, peach, and fresh bread. The palate is balanced and full with a finish that is elegant and nuanced.

POINTS OF INTEREST

This is the Doré clone, considered the most complex clone of the Aligoté grape, from very old vines. Boris Champy now runs the Montchovet estate holdings that are certified biodynamic (Demeter) on limestone rich soils at high elevations. Vines planted after the 80s are using the Lyre trellis system but most of the Aligoté is from the original vines as old as 70 years.

Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Rouge
"Altitude"

Bourgogne, Hautes-Côtes de Beaune AOC

Pinot Noir

This is a signature wine of the estate that highlights high altitude plantings in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Prominent tart red fruits like cherry and pomegranate, earthy notes of forest floor, and wild herbs abound with notes of wood spice, like cedar. The palate is lively and expressive with a freshness and acidity that allude to a great future and continued development.

POINTS OF INTEREST

The Hautes-Côtes de Beaune will play a major role in Burgundy's future. With global warming on the rise, and several of the hottest years on record recorded recently, these higher elevations offer a more balanced ripening season than ever before. The biodynamic vision considers the farm; its plants, animals and humans, as a synergetic and symbiotic partner to natures balance and growth.

Côteaux Bourguignons
"Gamay Fin"

Côteaux Bourguignons AOC

Gamay

Gamay was once very popular in Burgundy until it was outlawed in 1395. This is a beautiful and rare opportunity to enjoy classic Gamay in the historic hills above Pommard in Burgundy. This old vine Gamay is full of dark fruits and rocky minerality. The aromas are of violet, blackberry, wet topsoil, and smoked pepper followed by a dense palate with soft dusty tannins, making for a pleasurable finish.

POINTS OF INTEREST

Gamay has found its home south of the Côte de Beaune in Beaujolais. Apparently the Duke of Burgundy feared that it would overtake Pinot Noir in popularity so he outlawed it throughout Burgundy around 1400 AD. Today just a few hundred hectares of Gamay exist in Burgundy and this is one of the finest examples you will find showing great depth from small parcels planted in the 50s.
