DOMAINE BORIS CHAMPY

Nantoux, Burgundy

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 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.
