Established in 1720, Maison Champy has an illustrious history and is the oldest wine company in Burgundy. Declared a historic monument by UNESCO, the winery was designed by the famed architect, Gustave Eiffel. It sits above an ancient 15th-century Jacobin monk cellar and was also the place where renowned scientist, Louis Pasteur had his laboratory and developed the pasteurization method. (His equipment can still be seen there today!) Winemaking is led by Technical Director and Oenologist, Dimitri Bazas. He has been with Maison Champy for more than 20 years, guiding their mission to craft the best possible expression of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, highlighting the exceptional terroir of its 52 acres of prized organically farmed Beune vineyards.
