PRODUCT REVIEWS (2)

Domaine Alain Chavy consists of 17 acres, mainly in Puligny-Montrachet, with small holdings in the neighboring villages of Chassagne and Meursault, creating wines of great subtlety, restraint, structure, complexity and ageworthiness.

Even at this early stage in the wine's development there's a beautiful golden shimmer in the glass, hinting at a wine of great depth and concentration.

The nose offers seductive aromas of dried apricot, pineapple and freshly sliced pear with a faint woody tone and sense of creaminess in the background.

On to the palate and – wow! – endless layers of exotic stone fruit drift across with a warming cedar and a creamy texture. Where baked apple, intermingled with poached pear, apricot and spice all vie for your attention.

It's so perfectly balanced, and that hint of creaminess and smokey oak is kept in check by a freshening, mineral-laden seam that makes itself known on the finish with a crisp, freshening zing. Such that whilst also cleansing the palate, it allows the elegant fruit to prevail.

Around 25% has been vinified in larger 400-litre French oak puncheons, subtly adding texture and warmth. Domaine Alain Chavy's cellars are among the deepest and coolest in Burgundy, ensuring that malolactic fermentation – the process that imbues the wine with its creamy character – progresses at a glacial pace. This effect enhances both complexity and depth on the palate.

Clearly this 2021 is now in a beautiful place and will evolve over the coming 5-10 years. But once tasted, I should think you might struggle to hold off pulling its cork from here on in.
