Maison Champy has been sold to AdVini who also owns several other wine producers including Domaine Laroche in Chablis.
Champy is the oldest existing negociant house in Burgundy and was established in 1720. Champy acquired Domaine Laleure-Piot in 2010 – and this estate is also sold alongside Champy to AdVini.
There is so far no info about the export/agent business Diva Beaune – if this in any way is affected by this deal.
Vins d’émotion – wines that offer joy and hedonistic thrills
The principle with vins d’emotion is that they bring you extraordinary joy and hedonistic thrills. A wine can be great, and at the same time not quite be a vin d’emotion.
All wines that evoke these emotional responses deserve a recommendation, and I have therefore created four levels of emotion recommendation: from the true and rare vin d’émotion to wines with some emotional potential.
