The Domaine has three plots on the classic Côte de Beaune: a Pommard, a First Growth Beaune called Aux Couchérias, and this First Growth Beaune Vignes Franches, which is outstanding in 2019. It is a modest plot (1/5 of a hectare) whose vines lie close to the Clos des Mouches, near the Pommard commune boundary, always early-ripening. The soil is light, clay-limestone, with small rocks. Vines are old or fully mature, planted prior to 1985. Piles of stones surround the plot (collected by vignerons, to enable the land to be worked), which isolate and protect it. Colour of this wine is ruby-purple of medium depth, aromas being very lively. Palate is rich and fleshy, with beguiling texture, generous fruit and gentle tannins (for drinking 2024-2030+). Like all of Boris Champy’s wines, this is certified organic (by Ecocert), and also certified bio-dynamic (by Demeter).
