2021 Maison Champy Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru

Tasting note

Today, I was at Maison Champy in the town of Beaune for a tour of their cellar and a brief dégustation. I didn’t take notes during the tasting, so these are just some quick thoughts on the wines as I remember them.

Very complex though probably far too young. Stony minerality, floral notes and a tad reductive (in the form of matches) with wood spice in the back. Provisional points 15-17, but I’d lay this down until 2028 or so.

Drink from 2028 through 2035.
