2012 Maison Champy Pommard 1er Cru Hospices de Beaune "Cuvée Dames de la Charité"

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.

Wow, very elegant nose. Pinot fruit, hints of truffles, soft but dry tannins, and an inviting freshness. Lovely transparent colour in the glass. Instantly my favourite wine of the tasting. It’s open and in a good spot to enjoy today. Provisional points 15-17. Potential beyond 2030.

Drink through 2032.
