Domaine Jean Louis
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.
The nose is immediate and powerful, showing decadent fleshy tropical fruit, honey, buttered cooking apple and great minerality. The palate is full, ripe and creamy, rounded and golden throughout with an elegant and yet forceful character that borders on the hedonistic.
The grapes were picked on the 27th and fermented in 20% new oak.
