2019 Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Altitude, Domaine Boris Champy
This comes from the young vines of the domaine, and has a red fruit, juicy, peppery sappiness, with a tantalisingly long, silky, salty finish. The chalky acidity and velvety tannins are a revelation. This is so far removed from the rustic, green, watery wines that once were commonplace in the Hautes-Côtes; this is a serious wine, but its refreshing fluidity means it is first and foremost a joyful and delicious Pinot. There’s nothing complicated to unpick here: it is simply a gorgeous wine.
