Maison Champy Aloxe Corton 2017
Celebrating in 2020 its 300 years of creation, Maison Champy is the oldest Negociant of Burgundy. Founded in 1720 as the first established wine house, a large part of its 21 hectares of vines in the Côte de Beaune – especially in Pernand-Vergelesses – organically in order to preserve and highlight the true character of this exceptional terroir.
Dedicating the same thorough process for its estate wines and its growers’ plots allows Dimitri Bazas, technical director and oenologist of Champy for the past 20 years to reach excellence vintage after vintage.
Beautiful intense garnet color. The nose reveals floral notes, a toasted reduction and emphasizes woody and toasted notes. The palate, concentrated, reveals both a firm and delicate cassis and ripe fruit. A beautiful field and a lot of finesse in this wine that gets better with aeration and shows a good ageing potential.
