Domaine Alain Chavy Puligny-Montrachet (2015)

New

Wines from Puligny-Montrachet are typified by aromas and flavors of green apple and lemon and tend to be tauter and firmer on the palate compared to wines from neighboring villages. Aging in a small percentage of new French oak barrels lends accents of toast and vanilla. Structured white wines with high acid and grip, Puligny-Montrachet is destined for long aging.

    Alain Chavy produces restrained, structured, and long-lived white Burgundies from 17 acres of vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet, with small holdings in the neighboring villages of Chassagne and Meursault. Alain established Domaine Alain Chavy in 2003 with vineyards inherited from his father and includes some of Puligny's top premier crus.

    About the Vineyard

    For some, Puligny-Montrachet is the ultimate white wine location on earth thanks to its perfect aspect and well-drained limestone soil. Alain Chavy’s Puligny-Montrachet comes from several parcels around Puligny from vines planted between 1965 and 1974. Parcels near Meursault have heavier soils, bringing body and power, while the gravel-limestone soils around Chassagne contribute elegance and minerality.

    Wine Production

    Alain inoculates for fermentation and believes in keeping bâtonnage to a minimum. He uses a combination of 400-liter oak puncheons and 20% new Burgundian pièce for the village-level wines. “We’re looking for balance between the fruit and oak character,” explains Alain. “We want the wines’ minerality to show through.”
