Review:


"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Les Champs-Gain 1er Cru has an intense, voluminous bouquet of yellow flowers, white peach and crushed stone aromas that feel very cohesive. The palate has a rounded texture on the entry. Slightly lower in acidity and quite plush for a Puligny, with a pure and quite persistent finish. Fine.- Neal Martin"

Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Femelottes 2018

Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Femelottes is made form 100 percent Chardonnay.

This is a charming, rich, focused and delightful white. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture, the wine has a fresh backbone of acidity, clean apple and citrus flavors, and an excellent balance. A most refreshing quaff and one that is great value. A delicate, expressive wine of exceptional quality.

The grapes from this wine are grown from the Puligny-Montrachet area. (either outside of the AOC limit or with younger vines).

Chavy-Chouet Cremant de Bourgogne NV

Chavy-Chouet Cremant de Bourgogne is made from 7 year old Chardonnay grapes in Puligny-Montrachet.

18 months in barrels and on laths

It is a pure and elegant wine with balanced structure and a very low dosage. Intense aromas of citrus fruits, apple, apricot and white peaches, fine bubbles. Apple and Asian pear flavors, a round mouthfeel and a clean finish.

Pairs well with Cassoulet, Ceviche, Crab Soufflé.

Review:

"Pale yellow. Shows aromas of cooked apple with citrus notes. Clean and crisp on the attack, it’s full in the mouth with good freshness and effervescence on a refined, mineral driven palate. Dry but long on the finish with lingering hints of apple and oyster shells. Made from 7 year old Chardonnay grapes grown in Puligny-Montrachet and aged 18 months in barrel. This family winery is now in its 7 generation."

Chavy-Chouet Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien 2018

Chavy-Chouet Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.

The wine is produced from 30 year-old vines overlooking the grand crus of Puligny-Montrachet. The vines grow on limestone soils covered with white pebble stones.
The altitude and the poor soil result in a fine, subtle wine with bright acidity. It is a feminine wine that evolves slowly with floral and spicy notes before taking on greater density and revealing its power.

Ageing in oak barrels for 12 months (20% new).100% Chardonnay of 30 years of age.
The vineyard measures 0.17 hectare with a plenting density of 10,000 vines per hectare.

Review:

"The 2018 Saint-Aubin Les Murgers des Dents de Chiens 1er Cru comes from a parcel at the top of the hill that tends to ripen last out of all the domaine’s holdings. It has a taut, fresh, Puligny-like bouquet of citrus fruit, hazelnut, flecks of almond and a hint of patisserie in the background. The palate is saline on the entry, very intense and broody, with crushed stone and dewy Granny Smith apples on the persistent finish. This is superb. - Neal Martin"

The nose is filled with blackberry and blackcurrant fruits, licorice and vanillin. Medium-bodied with a solid texture of dark fruit, roasted coffee, and spice flavors. Long finish.

Traditional vinification in small tanks. Four week maceration. Aging in 2-3 year old oak barrels for 16 months. No fining, no filtration.

great with "Entrecote a la Bordelaise" which is Beef Steak marinated in red wine with Shallots.

Review:

The 2015 Font du Jeu Cotes de Castillon offers ample dark fruits, plums, and leafy herbs notes to go with a frontend-loaded, textured profile that’s ready to go. A blend of 70% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in used barrels, it’s a terrific value and will offer plenty of pleasure over the coming 5-7 years. - Jeb Dunnuck 90 Points

Product Description

The grapes are harvested from a few different parcels: Les Tremblots; Les Meix, Les Levrons; Corvée des Vignes; and Les Reuchaux. Jean-Louis uses oak sparingly. This wine is aged in oak, 15% of which is new.

Aromas of summer fruit and ripe plums. Good intensity on the palate with a steely focus and a long, intense finish. 

Review:

This wine is "a ripe take on Puligny, the apple flavors heading into pineapple, bright and juicy, still holding some chamomile notes in the lees." (04/18) Wine & Spirits 90 Points

Winery: J-L & F Chavy

The Chavy family have lived in Puligny-Montrachet for over 200 years but it was not until 1986, though that Gérard Chavy began estate bottling. Upon the retirement of Gérard in 1998, the brothers Jean-Louis and Alain jointly ran the estate until 2003 when they split it with Jean-Louis creating his own estate in 2004. He now shares most of his parcels with his brother, Alain but he did acquire a parcel of his own in the premier cru Perrières. Total holdings are 7 hectares primarily in PulignyMontrachet. Jean-Louis makes his vines average 35 years old, he keeps a restrained use of French oak on his wines to display the purity of fruit and minerality.
