Domaine Jean Louis Chavy

Jean-Louis Chavy is one of the sons of Gerard Chavy. Jean-Louis now runs his own domaine whilst his brother Alain runs Domaine Gerard Chavy. The brand new air-conditioned cellar was built in 2003, in the heart of the village of Puligny-Montrachet. The winemaking methods used are traditional, and the result is elegant and rich wines which show no noticeable oak influence.

Tasting Notes

New to our list and what a great addition. Pierre Morey, winemaker at Domaine Leflaive for many years called this appellation the “Bâtard” of the premier cru. The vines are planted in the middle of the slope, below its fellow 1er Cru Folatières and next to Pucelles. Produced from 50 year old vines and aged in 25% new oak for 12 months, this is an incredibly profound wine, with opulent and concentrated ripe pineapple fruit supported by a stoney structure and a citrus tang.
