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 two Chavy-Chouet wines from 2014, a year that was a nail-biter for Burgundy’s winemakers--it was hot, it was cold and rainy, it had hail, but it finished cool and sunny, helping vignerons like Romaric Chavy-Chouet make wines that fill your mouth with lusciousness. Chavy-Chouet’s 2014 Puligny-Montrachet Enseignères and Meursault Narvaux are wines Burgundy lovers won’t want to miss, especially priced at under $60 a bottle.
There’s no doubt that summer is here, and that means it’s time to drink rosé. While I will pour a good, steely rosato like Raffaele Palma’s any day of the year, not everyone will, nor do all rosé wines fit a cold winter day. Fortunately, rosé comes in a dizzying array of styles, and I love them all. In addition to Chavy-Chouet’s stellar whites, you’ll find all of IWM’s blush wines on sale, from Provençal bottlings to Champagnes, from Italy’s Campania to Alto-Adige--and even as far-flung as Oregon’s fine Tony Soter estate. Summer is no time to deny yourself joy, and there’s no wine that screams happiness quite like rosé.
