2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, Alain Chavy

This was the final wine tasted one day in Burgundy, and it blew us away: what a way to finish the day. Lime and grapefruit, and such salinity: you really feel the soil here. Open and energetic, it’s an explosion on the palate. Brilliant.

2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru, 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.
