Maison Champy is the oldest winery in Burgundy and was founded in 1720 in Beaune. Louis Pasteur worked on this iconic estate to learn the trade and Gustave Eiffel, after building the Eiffel Tower for the World Exhibition in Paris, worked at Maison Champy, where he designed the building for the Maison Champy winery according to the architectural style of Eiffel.
Maison Champy organically manages a large part of its 21 hectares of vineyards on the Côte de Beaune - especially in Pernand-Vergelesses - to preserve and emphasize the true character of this exceptional terroir. Precision viticulture is the goal of Maison Champy. The importance of the environment means that every treatment follows the practices of sustainable and organic farming.
The vineyard of Pouilly-Fuissé is located on clay and limestone soils of Jura origin, on masses of fallen rocks and reddish marl. The chardonnay produced here is of a predestined terroir and makes the wine very lively, complex but also full of charm. After the manual harvest of the chardonnay grapes and the fermentation, the wine matures in French oak barrels. 80% is used oak and 20% is new oak so the oak is there but certainly not dominating.
In the glass, the Maison Champy Pouilly-Fuissé has a beautiful clear color, golden yellow with white gold reflections. The nose is intense, complex and fresh. It has notes of yellow fruit and subtle spice notes. The palate is lively with subtle flavors of brioche and a slight minerality. A wine full of energy that expresses the most beautiful terroirs of Pouilly Fuissé. This wine should be served with crustaceans (oysters, marinated mussels), grilled crustaceans (gambas, lobster), fish à la plancha, but it also goes perfectly with goat cheese (Aisy cendré, Banon, Sainte-Maure, Valençay ...).
