Our Winery

Henri Champliau is a family winery located in Mercurey, in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise  region of Burgundy. Founded by Alexandre GRAFFARD, grandson of Henri Champliau, we offer Crémant de Bourgogne, made in the traditional method from the noble grape varieties Pinot Noir & Chardonnay. We also offer a 'Signatures' range to the same high-quality standards of our winery.


A story of passion

Our grandfather was a man who was passionate about his region and the riches that it offers us. He loved fine food and great wines and owned vineyards in Mercurey, taking the time to pass on this passion to us, always with his rather mischievous and thoughtful character.

Initiated as a private sommelier as soon as I was 7 years old, I have kept this approach to the world of wine and this absolute admiration for the terroir and craftsmanship of Burgundy.

It is these emotions that motivate our business today and that we also wish to pass on in turn”. Alexandre GRAFFARD



Individual style

Elegance, clarity, strength and freshness.

“A great chef seeks to make each aroma count in individual notes to bring out the quality of a fine local product. The sensation must be intense and precise, without ever weighing down the palate. 

Our Crémant de Bourgogne is created in this spirit so that all the potential of the flavour is expressed with finesse and lightness and with a surprising length in the mouth”. Alexandre GRAFFARD

In order to achieve this result, our quality demands extend to the selection for the blends, respect for the time spent maturing in the cellar and using precise quantities for the “dosage”.

For our blends of Brut Authentique and Brut Rosé, the Pinot Noir grape variety (widely used in Grand Cru Champagne) predominates, bringing all its strength and complexity. It is a very unusual choice because this variety of grape is also the most complicated to obtain. These vineyards are very often reserved for the production of the red wines of Burgundy and the yields are very low for the production of base wine.
