Description

Domaine Jean-Louis Chavy was formed in the mid-2000's following the retirement of Gerard Chavy. Jean-Louis and his brother Alain divided the family holdings, with Jean-Louis now bottling his share of Bourgogne Blanc, Puligny-Montrachet village including a separate cuvée from the lieu-dit Les Charmes, along with the premier crus of Folatieres, Perrieres, Champ Gains, and Clavoillons.

Working in his spacious brand new winemaking facility and temperature controlled cellar, vinification is classic whole bunch press with cool settling for 24 hours before fermentation using only natural yeasts. New oak use is restrained with the village wine receiving 15% new oak, and the premier crus only 25%. These are effortless and unforced wines with the emphasis squarely on purity of fruit and vineyard definition.

From vines bordering on Puligny AC vineyards. Shows wonderful perfume and depth for this level. Aged 3/4 in barrel (none new) and 1/4 in stainless steel. This wine shows great aromas and very clear fruit expression and offers a lot of pleasure from an early age. This is an outstanding value and a great introduction to the spotlessly pure wines of Jean-Louis Chavy.

Tasting Profile

Palate
From 0.146 ha of vines planted in 1986 which were purchased by Jean-Louis. This wine has a lifted mineral nose with subtle scents of honeysuckle and almond, certainly endowed with the vigour one expects from this vineyard. The palate is fine, harmonious, and svelte on the entry. This is a Perrieres demonstrating typical fine mineral nuance, though it needs more time to develop and show its best.
