The fruit for this bottling comes entirely from Champy-owned vineyards, situated on the Pernand-Vergelesses side of the appellation. Unusually for Burgundy, most of the vines face westerly (a cooler exposure), and run all the way from the foot of the Corton hillside to the top. The wine’s exceptional intensity of flavour and length of aftertaste are accounted for partly by the slow, gradual ripening and extra hang-time from which the grapes benefit. The colour is striking lemon-green, the aromas being beautiful and fresh. citrussy, smoky and spiced. With velevety texture and complex, concentrated middle-palate, there is sufficient fresh acidity to give vivacity and finesse to this powerful, mouthcoating wine (for drinking 2014-2025+).
