A word about the producer
Champy is the oldest "Maison de négoce" in Burgundy, created in 1720. Since Pierre Beuchet took over in 1990 we have seen a constant increase in the quality of their wines, thanks to the hard work of the winemaker Dimitri Bazas. It is a little gem that produces affordable wine in a region where rarity means expensive wines. A particular care is given to all wines, from the entry-level Chardonnay to the rare Corton Grand Cru.

"Though round and lush in texture, this white shows concentrated flavors of apple, lemon and spice. Balanced and fresh, with fine length on the finish."
