Domaine Chavy-Chouet

Romaric Chavy of Chavy-Chouet
Chavy Chouet Vineyard

Domaine Chavy-Chouet stands out in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune, not just for its rich heritage but for the fresh energy Romaric Chavy has infused since taking the helm in 2008. Jasper Morris MW once celebrated it as a 'domaine to watch', and Romaric is living up to that prediction, and then some.

Romaric's winemaking journey started at 12, shaping his approach with experiences across the globe. Now, he's applying this eclectic expertise to his family's vineyards, spread over 15 hectares across five communes, including Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault. The domaine's offerings, ranging from the refined Premier Crus to the approachable Bourgogne Blanc ‘Les Femelottes’, each reflect Romaric's commitment to quality.

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.

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.

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.

IN THE PRESS

It is always a pleasure to discover a producer who has skimmed under your Burgundy radar for some time. Chavy-Chouet has built a loyal following here in the UK and I can understand why. These wines are very pure, terroir-driven and focused. Yet they are not challenging or pretentious and give much sensory pleasure."
Neal Martin - Vinous

"Romaric Chavy, who succeeded his father Hubert at the helm of this 13-hectare domaine in early 2006, is a young but experienced vigneron producing pure, tensile wines that are typically distinguished by their racy acids and aromatic precision."
William Kelley - The Wine Advocate
