Boris Champy is enthusiastic and believes in the future of the Hautes-Côtes, in particular thanks to their altitude in a context of global warming. Together with neighboring winegrowers, he wishes to continue raising the reputation of the wines of this superb, too little-known wine region. The objective of Domaine Boris Champy is simple: to highlight the localities, enhance the microclimates, the various exhibitions and other fascinating subtleties.
At altitude, in the hills and valleys of the Hautes-Côtes, Boris practices viticulture a little out of step with that of the great wine-growing coast. The plots are islands of biodiversity with multiple enclosures but also trees, hedges, walls and dead trees, fruit trees ... Boris knows that it is necessary to have a holistic approach, that of a global system in agroecology, intimately eco-friendly.
Domaine Boris Champy is the new name of the historic Domaine Didier Montchovet who, without a successor, wanted to hand over his estate to Boris Champy, who was renamed in 2020 following the takeover of the Domaine.
Trained oenologist, Boris Champy was technical director of Domaine Louis Latour in Beaune, then manager of Clos des Lambrays in Morey-Saint-Denis.
A pioneer estate in biodynamic and certified viticulture
Since its founding in 1984, the estate has chosen to be certified both in Organic Agriculture (Ecocert) and for its biodynamic practices (Demeter). Anecdotal? Far from it! If the estate was a pioneer when it was founded and ecology very far from fashionable, things have changed, and so much the better.
Awareness is global and our world cannot continue as before. However, certification pushes us to our limits, prohibits the right to make mistakes. It is a driver much more than a constraint, every day, and a strong commitment to our employees, our customers and our consumers.
Harvests, vinification and aging: to accompany gently
No great wine without great grapes! Our vines are pampered throughout the vegetative cycle. When ripe, the grapes are harvested by hand, by a small team of faithful in a very family atmosphere.
The vinifications are the least interventionist possible: indigenous yeasts only, control of the fermentation by the play of gently controlled temperatures, little punching down or extractions ... Boris Champy seeks to discover the soul of each plot, the spirit of the grape variety and the place.
The breeding phase is the art of patience and respect. Patience because it takes many months for the barrels to gently imprint their character (origin, toast, grain). Respect because wood is only at the service of wine. The Domaine therefore uses rather weak barrels and very few new barrels.
