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 Blanc "Montagne 382"
From the Montagne de Cras, plot in Nantoux, the soils here is very varied, stony, but also full of clay. The 4-hectare plot is made up of 3 hectares of vines and 1 hectare of natural areas of great biodiversity: scree slopes, hedges, orchards, limestone grasslands with numerous orchids and even a few corm trees, which are extremely rare these days.
In the winery, the fruit is whole bunch pressed into part barrel (25% new) and part small stainless barrels and left to sit on lees for up to 12 months.
Rich and generous citrus fruits, honey and subtle floral notes, rounded out by a nice integration of oak and balanced acidity.
