Maison Champy Gevrey Chambertin 1er Les Cazetiers 2011
Champy is a small family-business. The company's principle is not to grow significantly, but to stay a "boutique negociant" consistently producing artisanal wines that expresses the nuances of the Burgundian terroirs. Founded in 1720, Champy is both the first established wine house of Burgundy and a pioneer of the Burgundy vineyard for its rational practice of organic and sustainable farming methods. Champy represents about twenty five hectares of vines on the Cote de Beaune.
The estate produces about 500 000 bottles per year. With the Domaine Laleure-Piot, Champy is also one of the major producers of the Pernand-Vergelesses appellation. Dimitri Bazas – Champy'swinemaker since 1999 – ensures the General Management, with Pierre Beuchet, historical owner and majority shareholder since 2012.
