The 2020 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Beaune “Altitude” includes 50% whole bunch this vintage. Dark berry fruit, touches of undergrowth (damp moss on an autumn day), this is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit on the opening, fine acidity, a little spicier towards the elegant finish. Vivid and energetic.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2030

From young vines and lots that are declassified from Champy’s top bottlings, the 2020 Hautes-Côtes de Beaune Altitude offers aromas of sweet red berries, cherries, petals and spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with lively acids, powdery tannins and a supple, seamless profile, it already offers charming, demonstrative drinking.
Anticipated maturity: 2021-2030
