Being both owner and winemaker, Jean Louis Chavy only uses a restrained amount of oak to age his wines in order to produce white Burgundies that show great purity of fruit and minerality.
Blended from two separate plots, the grapes grown on stony soil bring acidity and structure while the one grown on richer soil add body and depth to the wine. A generous wine with intense aromas of stone fruits alongside toasty and mineral notes. Full bodied and deep on the palate with a refreshing acidity and great length.
French still white wine from Cote de Beaune in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or (Bourgogne) France, made with Chardonnay.
Based in Puligny Montrachet for over 200 years, the Domaine Chavy started to bottle his wines on the estate in 1986. When Gerard Chavy retired, his two sons Jean Louis and Alain took over the estate and later decided to split it, with Jean Louis creating his own estate in 2004. Being both owner and winemaker, Jean Louis Chavy produces white Burgundies that show great purity of fruit and minerality and age and develop gracefully.
The 7 hectares of vineyard are planted with Chardonnay with an average of 30 years old vines. Only a restrained amount of oak is being used to age the wines.
Only white wines are produced including a Bourgogne Blanc, two Puligny Montrachet Village, and four premier crus; ‘Crus Champs Gain’, ‘Clavoillons’, ‘Folatieres’ and ‘Perrieres’.
