|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.|
