Bourgogne Aligote is a regional AOC produced all over Burgundy (Cote d’Or, Yonne, Saone-et-Loire and the arrondissement of Villefranche-sur-Saone).
It is produced above all in the vine-growing areas around Auxerre, in the Hautes-Cote de Beaune and Hautes-Cotes de Nuits, and in the Cote Chalonnaise, where it is best at home and which give it its distinct and most consistent character.
|CHAMPY was created in 1720 by Edme CHAMPY, a Master Cooper in Beaune. It was the first ever Burgundian negociant established and for most of its operating life has been family run. In 1990, the current director Pierre MEURGEY (with his father Henri) purchased CHAMPY with the conviction to revitalise its historic reputation.
Pierre comes from a long line of Burgundian winemakers and brokers, and understands the business from the ground up. CHAMPY is a small, passionate, family run business. The company’s principle is not to grow significantly, but to consistently produce artisanal wines with continued supply.
For nearly 300 years, CHAMPY has produced the best examples of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir on the Cote d’Or, that are enjoyed by customers the world over. Although CHAMPY is definitely an estate with a long history, today it is looking forward to its bright and tremendous future.
With 27 hectares of vines on the Cote de Beaune using biodynamic farming methods, Domaine Champy produces wine all the while respecting the traditions and character of each terroir.
