PRE-ARRIVAL: THIS WINE WILL SHIP LATE OCTOBER 2021

Domaine Alain Chavy consists of 17 acres, mainly in Puligny-Montrachet, with small holdings in the neighboring villages of Chassagne and Meursault. Alain practices lutte raisonnée in his vineyards, eschewing herbicides, and relies solely on plowing for weed control. Alain seeks to produce structured and long-lived white Burgundies. He prefers restrained wines that express terroir, with ripe fruit flavors and good minerality. The ‘Les Charmes’ lieu-dit is situated next to the 1er Cru vineyard of ‘Les Charmes’ in Meursault, and this gives the wine the rich spicy feel of Meursault in combination with the elegance and minerality of Puligny. This is a focused, structured Puligny Montrachet that is well-suited for cellaring, or can be decanted to drink earlier.
