Maison Champy is the oldest winery in Burgundy and was founded in 1720 in Beaune. Louis Pasteur has 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.

These 100% Chardonnay grapes come from the appellation and the city of Meursault, located in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune. The vineyard is spread over gentle slopes, between 230 and 360 m altitude and is very conveniently located for its maximum sunshine. The abundance of marl in the limestone environment explains why the chardonnay grapes of this terroir are at their maximum expression and explains the enormous popularity of Meursault wines.

The wine has a beautiful golden color in the glass. The nose has a nice aromatic complexity, with subtle woody notes, finely buttered with notes of white peach. On the palate, the wine is elegant, fruity, with a generous palate with spicy notes (cinnamon and white pepper). On the finish, this blissful Meursault of France's oldest Burgundy house has a good length and a generosity typical of the terroir and of a good Meursault.
