Pernand-Vergelesses, Burgundy, France
These vineyards cover the hilly slopes of Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-lès-Beaune. There are only four Premier Crus Pinot Noirs: “Les Fichots”, “En Caradeux”, “Creux de la Net”, “Iles des Hautes et Basses Vergelesses”. This wine is aged in a 350-barrel and a 228-litre used barrel. The wine is open and intense on the nose with notes of orange and grapefruit. The attack is fresh and supple. A well-balanced and concentrated wine with good mineral length on the finish.
93 Points, Decanter
Not the biggest white wine cuvée at Maison Champy at only 25 barrels, but this 1ha parcel planted in the 1970s has produced a very stylish, saline, focused Chardonnay in the heat of 2018, with sweet vanilla-spicy oak, subtle gunflint aromas and a core of fresh, tangy, citrus and lime fruit.
