For the last 20 years, Dimitri Bazas has managed the technical team with passion and expertise.

Dimitri Bazas

As a wine consultant for a laboratory in Beaune, he provided harvest, wine making and ageing advice for the most prestigious Domaines of the Côte d’Or. He then took over the technical management of Maison Champy with one single mission: to develop the best possible expression of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from each unique terroir in Burgundy, and particularly the Côte de Beaune. He was a major actor in both the vineyard’s expansion to the 21 hectares it owns today, and in the conversion of a large part of the estate to organic farming.

He is assisted by:


Vineyard Manager,

who has spent the last 20 years highlighting the vineyard’s potential while protecting the environment.

Francis Simon


Cellar Master since 1982.

Passionate and detail-oriented, he has been involved in each chapter of the past 35 years.

José Ramalho


President of Laroche in Chablis,

joined the team in 2016 and is now at the head of the oldest wine company in Burgundy.
