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.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune "Altitude" is a blend of the two climats of "Le Clous" and "En Bignon". Due to be bottled in February, 2021, it has a clean and pure bouquet with perfumed iris petals aromas tincturing the blackberry and blueberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity, good tension with a slightly sappy, saline finish. A joy from start to finish.
