About the Winery:
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 this Wine:
Alain Chavy’s Bourgogne Blanc comes from young vines grown in Puligny where the wines typically show green and yellow fruit, firm acidity and distinctive minerality. This Bourgogne Blanc, while light in body, is taut and fresh in character. As Chavy puts it, “We’re looking for a balance between the fruit and oak character,” explains Alain. “We want the wines’ minerality to show through.”
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.
White Burgundy, with its rich texture and toasted flavors, pairs well with white fish and shellfish and its naturally high acidity can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay from warmer climates lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
Ratings & Reviews
"The 2020 Bourgogne Chardonnay has a light bouquet with a dab of lemon sherbet. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, just a little sharpness on the finish." – Neal Martin (Dec 2021)
