2020 Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Altitude, Domaine Boris Champy

This comes from the young vines of the domaine, which are scattered across various parcels around the village of Nantoux. It has a zesty acidity giving it a fresh profile, which is twinned with the ripe berry fruit character. Whole bunch has been upped to 50% in 2020. It has a nice pepperiness, with a sapid length.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune "Altitude" includes 50% whole bunch this vintage. Dark berry fruit, touches of undergrowth (damp moss on an autumn day), this is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit on the opening, fine acidity, a little spicier towards the elegant finish. Vivid and energetic.
