On the palate, too, the notes of ripe strawberries and raspberries lightly sprinkled with vanilla and sugar combine with milk chocolate and oranges, a little tobacco and cinnamon in the Aux Coucherias.

Wine information

For this wine, Boris Champy used Pinot Noir from the west-facing parcel in Aux Coucherias just before Bouze-lès-Beaune. The 1er Cru was planted in the 1950ies, the site is very steep and characterized by dark loam and limestone. Champy knows the vineyard from his time at Louis Jadot; because the house produces there the Clos de Couchereaux. With Champy, it's the Clos Montchovet. The Clos is isolated by trees and gorse. The plot has been cultivated with biodynamic practices since 1985. The stock density is around 10,000 in Guyot education. Boris Champy has the grapes to 50 % vendange entière and fermented to 50 % as whole grapes and aged over twelve months in barriques.

Color

slightly transparent garnet red

Nose

Boris Champys Beaune 1er Cru Aux Coucherias 2019 combines notes of ripe cherries and dark raspberries with cocoa and liquorice in the fragrance. On top are a few plums with a little vanilla. The wine appears pleasantly ripe and elegant, the wood is present but well integrated.

Palate

Also on the palate combine with the Aux Coucherias the notes of ripe strawberries and raspberries lightly sprinkled with vanilla and sugar with milk chocolate and oranges, a little tobacco and cinnamon. Here, too, the extremely elegant wood is dominant, giving the wine a decidedly sensual component. The tannin is round, almost soft, without seeming in any way plain because of it. Everything simply fits together well, the Pinot is balanced and coherent.
