Rich and concentrated on the palate with layer after layer of flavour, this is a beautiful wine with refreshing acidity that balances out the whole palate.

“After Chavy Chouet's Bourgogne Blanc, 'Les Femelottes' picked a couple of weeks ago as a staff recommendation, I thought I’d continue the love for Chavy Chouet and pick his Premier Cru 'Les Narvaux' - it’s a great example of white Burgundy, well balanced and packed full of delicious stone fruits.”
“This has a very appealing, lush nose and palate with a generous creamy texture, roasted peach fruit with a touch of spice and bright acidity, but it falls away a little at the end.' ”
“Gorgeous, gilded, sweet, toasty, hazelnut biscuit of a meursault, from a good, not great, white vintage and only a single plot, not a premier cru, but frankly it tastes so darned delicious, it could easily pass for one. Rich, creamy, meursault is everyone’s idea of a great white burgundy and of late Domaine Chavy-Chouet have bowled me over with the dazzling quality of their wines, especially this one. With masses of sublime, silky fruit, stylishly integrated with lots of fine-grained, nutty, new oak, this magnificent meursault, from the large Narvaux vineyard, abutting two premiers crus, makes elegant drinking now but even so I would put it away for three more years, for even richer flavours to come to the fore.”
