Chavy-Chouet’s “Insider” White Burgundies! And the Antinori Family's Drink-Me-Now Rosso di Montalcino!
December 27, 2019
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.

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.

Chavy Chouet Meursault Les Narvaux 2018 750ml
Chavy Chouet Meursault Narvaux 2018 750ml
Price: $74.99
Special Price: $59.99

2018 saw a warm, dry growing year for white Burgundy, and Chavy-Chouet made the most of the vintage in this rich, complex, mineral-laden ’18 Meursault Les Narvaux. Luscious citrus and orchard fruits layer with subtle scents of wood, warm river rocks, and toasted nuts in this broad-shouldered yet fresh mid-weight wine. Enjoyable about as soon as it hits your table, this wine will drink wonderfully over the medium term. Situated above the premier cru appellations of Genevrières and Poruzots, the soils of Les Narvaux are clayey, chalky and shallow, and Chavy-Chouet’s 1.2-acre plot boasts vines that average sixty years of age; this proximity gives the wine the power and decadence of Genevrières and the flintiness of Poruzots. Representing one of the many Meursault vineyards that makes a strong claim for premier cru status, this old-vine Meursault ferments in tank before aging in barrel, 20% new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration. more info
Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Les Enseigneres 2018 750ml
Chavy Chouet Puligny Montrachet Enseigneres 2018 750ml
Price: $74.99
Special Price: $59.99

A rich, ripe Enseignères vintage, this ’18 feels mouth-filling, textured and vibrant, marrying its crisp orchard fruits with succulent stone fruits, almonds, white flowers, and flint in an aromatic, broad-shouldered palate. You’ll be tempted to drink this seductive Enseignères immediately, but it’ll age nicely over the medium term. Although a village-level wine, Chavy-Chouet Puligny-Montrachet Les Enseignères has always been an insider’s wine because it lies directly beneath the grand cru Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet and shares much of the same power, richness and style at a fraction of the price. Deriving from the estate’s 2.5-acre clay and limestone Les Enseignères plot with 65-year-old vines, this wine ferments in tank before aging in barrel, 20% new, for about a year before bottling without fining or filtration. more info
