Domaine Jean-Louis Chavy Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres 2016
Under the law of Hong Kong, intoxicating liquor must not be sold or supplied to a minor in the course of business.
This wine comes from two plots of vines of 25-45 years old, in what is thought by many to be Puligny’s finest 1er Cru vineyard, Les Folatières. The diverse characters of the two plots has lent this wine a similar diversity, at once showing richness, depth, intense minerality and acidic structure, tempered by softness and spice from well-judged use of oak. Drink over the next 5-8 years. Simply majestic.
Based in Puligny Montrachet for over 200 years, Domaine Chavy started to bottle his wines on the estate in 1986. When Gerard Chavy retired, his two sons Jean Louis and Alain took over the estate and later decided to split it, with Jean Louis creating his own estate in 2004. Being both owner and winemaker, Jean Louis Chavy produces white Burgundies that show great purity of fruit and minerality and age and develop gracefully.
Vineyard & Winemaking
The 7 hectares of vineyard are planted with Chardonnay with an average of 30 years old vines. Only a restrained amount of oak is being used to age the wines.
Only white wines are produced including a Bourgogne Blanc, two Puligny Montrachet Village, and four premier crus; ‘Crus Champs Gain’, ‘Clavoillons’, ‘Folatieres’ and ‘Perrieres’.
