A Note from Sergio
Chavy-Chouet is exactly the kind of estate that I love. It's family-owned-and-operated by people who have been winemakers for many generations. It's devoted to the terroir and the traditions of its land, and its wines are consistently very, very good, even in challenging years. Today, I'm very proud to present Chavy-Chouet's vivid Meursault Les Narvaux and knockout Puligny-Montrachet Enseignères, two wines from 2018, ripe vintage gems that reward eagle-eyed Burgundy fans with their easy marriage of explosive fruits and mouth-watering acidity.Today's Featured Sections Include:
The son of Hubert Chavy-Chouet, a taciturn but impassioned vigneron, Romaric Chavy-Chouet makes wines that fill your mouth with texture and flavor. Hubert, who passed away a few years ago, kept a very low profile by choice, but Romaric thinks a little bigger and a little more boldly. Since assuming control of Chavy-Chouet twelve years ago, he's expanded the domaine's production, but he has maintained the high quality of his Burgundies. Today's Chavy-Chouet 2018 duo highlights the vintage's tension between opulence and precision--these white Burgundies are fascinating!
Finally, don't miss today's luscious 2016 Rosso di Montalcino from the Antinori family--it's outrageous.
