Founded in 1720 in Beaune, Maison Champy is considered the oldest winery in Burgundy. Over the centuries, great men like Gustave Eiffel (builder of the Eiffel Tower) and Louis Pasteur cross paths and influence Champy, and the winery wins numerous gold medals and is served all over the globe from Moscow to St. Louis. Fast forward to 2005 and the owners begin the conversion of their vineyards to organic viticulture. Maison Champy runs a large part of its 21 ha of vines on the Côte de Beaune – especially in Pernand-Vergelesses – organically in order to preserve and highlight the true character of this exceptional terroir. Pernand Blanc at its best is said to taste like a baby Corton Charlemagne, one of the exceptional Grand Cru whites of Burgundy.  
 
Champy's Pernand Vergelesses vineyards cover the hilly slopes of Aloxe-Corton and Savigny-lès-Beaune. Look for a pale golden color with hints of silver. Good aromatic intensity and good transparency. The nose opens on white flower, citrus and wild mint notes, with a mineral touch. Frank, fresh and elegant attack. On the palate, the wine is mineral, harmonious and rich, with a long and persistent finish.

Shows fine intensity to the lemon, apple, stone and spice flavors here, backed by vivid acidity. Lean, building to a long, stony aftertaste, with a chalky sensation. Drink now through 2023. 500 cases made
