Domaine Jean-Louis Chavy Bourgogne Blanc is made from grapes grown in the house’s Puligny vineyards. Remarkable value, with intense aromatics and depth.
Gerard Chavy of Domaine Jean-Louis Chavy began bottling the house’s own wine in 1986. Prior to this, Chavy sold wines via négociants. Most vines on the estate are aged between 20 and 40 years. The domaine’s 1er crus are in close proximity to some of Puligny’s very best vineyards.
Light golden colour, limpid and crystalline, often with greenish highlights. In the Yonne, Bourgogne blanc often develops aromas of gunflint or field mushroom. In the Côte-d’Or it is hazelnut with a hint of honey, butter, bracken, spices and sugared chestnuts. In the Saône-et-Loire notes of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and flint abound. On the palate it is aromatic, delicate but not over-light, full without being heavy, unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, well-rounded and quite deep, not overly structured yet persistent.
