Domaine Chavy-Chouet

Winery History
The Chavy family are well established in the Côte de Beaune, with Alain, Jean-Louis and Phillipe all making wine in and around Puligny-Montrachet. Hubert Chavy had been selling the bulk of his production to the top négociants for many years, but since his son Romaric took over, they are bottling nearly everything they produce.

Incredibly experienced for such a young winemaker, Romaric is totally focused on realising the unbelievable potential of his stellar vineyard portfolio. About 40% of Romaric’s vines are in the village of Puligny-Montrachet, where he has prime parcels in spectacular sites such as Les Enseignères, Premier Cru Les Folatières and Premier Cru Champ Gains.

Viticulture/Winemaking Style
Meticulous work is done in the vineyards to ensure the health of the vines. No pesticides or herbicides are used, only copper and sulfur. After harvest, the fruit is gently pressed and allowed to settle, there is no battonage (lees stirring) to maintain purity. The wines are typically bottled unfined and with only light filtration if necessary. Stylistically, the Chavy-Chouet wines are full and rich, but with a wonderful freshness and vitality that makes them a pleasure to drink in their youth. This is a truly exciting domaine and Romaric is sure to be a star of the (not so distant) future.

Grape Varieties
Aligoté, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir

Fun Fact
Romaric started at Wine School at the age of 12, before working as an apprentice for his godfather François Mikulski in Meursault. He followed this with stints working in South Africa, Spain, Greece and the Languedoc before taking over from his father Hubert at just 22 years of age.
