The future of the Hautes-Côtes
Boris Champy enthusiastically believes in the future of Hautes-Cotes, thanks to their altitude in in a global warming context. With his neighbours, he wants to, continue to raise the reputation of this too less-known area. The objective is simple: show the subtle differences between “climats” and terroirs, with different soil types, sun exposures, slope inclinations, etc.
In altitude, we practice a “disruptive viticulture” slightly different from the rest of Côte de Beaune. Our single plot vineyards are large biodiversity islets, multiple « clos » with trees, edges, stone walls, stones piles, orchards… Boris knows an holistic approach is required: a global ecosystem with regenerative farming and utter respect for the environment.
Terroirs & Commitments
The estate is a true pioneer of organic and biodynamic viticulture in Burgundy, certified by Ecocert and Demeter.
For more than 35 years our terroirs have been handworked to reveal their quintessence in each wine we craft.
To reveal their full potential, the Hautes-Côtes require this hard work and attention to detail
From the vine… to our wines
Today more than ever, a great wine originates from a preserved soil. At the Domaine, we practice natural viticulture and winemaking.
We express each grape’s quintessence thanks to subtle and gentle winemaking. Our quest is to make great natural and fine wines.
The cycle then continues in the cellar with the marrying of the wine and the wood: a precise aging that subtly enhances each plot.
