2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon, Alain Chavy

The only other owners of Clavoillon are Alain’s brother, and Domaine Leflaive. Alain’s part was planted in 1950. Plenty of gun flint and salty minerality here. It’s floral, with silky acidity and excellent persistence on the finish. This is the sweet spot for Puligny.

2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clavoillon, Alain Chavy
Domaine Alain Chavy

Alain Chavy and his brother, Jean-Louis, split their father’s vineyards in 2003, as is often the case in Burgundy. Alain works a great selection of Puligny vineyards, and his traditionally styled wines convey some of the best of Puligny-Montrachet’s chiselled minerality alongside a fullness of body endowed by the wine’s classical élévage.
