Domaine Boris Champy, founded in 1984 by Didier Montchovet, is a story rooted in the family’s passion for viticulture. The son of a winegrower from Nantoux, Didier chose from the outset to cultivate his vines according to organic and biodynamic principles. In harmony with nature, he listened to the needs of his vines and worked with respect to preserve the balance of the ecosystem. Today, the estate is proud to be certified biodynamic by Demeter, testifying to its long-standing commitment to this respectful approach to nature.
In 2019, the estate entered a new chapter with the takeover by Boris Champy, former technical director of the prestigious Maison Louis Latour and steward of the famous Clos de Lambrays. Drawing on his experience and expertise, Boris has brought a new vision to the estate, while respecting the foundations established by Didier Montchovet. His commitment to excellence and in-depth knowledge of Burgundy terroirs have enabled the tradition of producing exceptional wines to continue.
Today, Domaine Boris Champy extends over 12 hectares, offering a true range of terroirs and grape varieties. Thanks to rigorous viticultural practices, the passion of the entire team and the faithful expression of the terroir, the domaine produces sublime wines. Each bottle is the result of meticulous work and a deep connection with nature, telling the story of Burgundy through captivating flavours and aromas.
The 2020 Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Altitude 421 Bignon is living up to its fine showing from barrel, bursting with scents of red berries, plums, cinnamon, raw cocoa and sweet spices. Medium-bodied, lively and ethereal, it’s lively and fine-boned, with melting tannins and a saline finish.[91 points – William Kelley – Aug 2022 – robertparker.com]
