Boris Champy has been fortunate for the opportunity to take over some of the oldest biodynamic vineyards in Burgundy. Taking on the vineyards of Didier Montchovet in 2019, Boris Champy believes that the Hautes-Côtes has an exciting future ahead of it, particularly thanks to their attitude within the context of global warming. Champys's vineyards have been biodynamically farmed since planted in 1984 and together with the neighbouring winegrowers, he is determined to continue building the reputation of the wines from this superb yet little-known winegrowing region.

Hautes Côtes de Beaune Rouge "Clou 377"

From the "Au Clou” plot in Nantoux, the soils here are very white and stony with a high marl content. Because of all the stones, the soil looks as if it is extremely poor but the marly-clay provides it with an excellent water supply. Given its stony nature, one could joke that it’s a bit of "Chateauneuf-du-Pape" soil in Burgundy!

Harvested by hand at perfect maturity. In the winery, the grapes go through a soft extraction with an important proportion of whole cluster, in wooden fermenters. The wine is then pressed off and aged for an average of 12 months with 30% new oak.

Certified Organic and Biodynamic.
