The Chavy family has been resident in the village of Puligny-Montrachet for over 200 years and the name is famous for consistent production of fine, elegant Burgundy. Alain owns 6.5 hectares of splendid vineyards and the quality of the wines is ever improving. Alain makes a restrained style of Puligny with ripe fruit balanced by crisp acidity, which are designed for aging.
Almost no chemicals are used in the vineyards apart for protection against mildew. All grapes are hand harvested, pressed and fermented. The entire crop is barrel fermented giving additional depth and intensity to the wines. 20% of the barrels are 400 litre, as he believes it keeps the wines rich and complex but with less oaky flavours.
Still in its youth the wine is showing good citrus fruits with some peach and a dash of wet stone minerality. There is a little biscuity quality developing. The flavour is continuing to develop showing lemon, lime zest, with a little brioche. The finish is very satisfying reflecting its overall outstanding quality. Drinking well now but will definitely reward some aging.
