Winemaker Notes

A relatively new parcel for Alain Chavy, Les Charmes is a lieu-dit with 30-year-old vines that borders the Meursault 1er Cru Charmes. Chavy’s style emphasizes precision and laser-like acidity; the site brings a notably rich fruit and great energy.

Thanks to its rich texture and toasted flavors, this wine pairs well with white fish and shellfish. Its natural high acidity counterbalances cream-based sauces.

Critical Acclaim

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Peach, apple and lemon cake flavors are enhanced by toasty oak and a mineral element in this seductive white. Still a bit firm, with all the components in the right proportions and a long, toasty finish. Drink now through 2024.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Since the 2014 vintage, the Puligny-Montrachet Les Charmes includes a hectare parcel next to Meursault Charmes, which Alain believes has improved the overall blend. I would not disagree. The 2015 Puligny Montrachet les Charmes has a perfumed bouquet with apple blossom, gooseberry and slate-like aromas. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry, a keen line of acidity, harmonious and poised with a lively nervosité on the finish. This is worth seeking out and marks a step up in quality from the village cru.
Range: 88-90

The sons of Gerald Chavy have split their fathers holdings into two domains. They remain one of handful of growers that still reside in Puligny. Most domains are now owned by outsiders. Decanter Magazine selected both Alain and Jean Louis Chavy as one of 'the most improved domaines in Burgundy. Great vineyard sites, especially the Folatieres. The other other grower in Clavoillons is Domaine Lefaive. Alain owns 6.5 hectares of splendid vineyards. Alain makes restrained style of Puligny with ripe fruit balanced by crisp acidity, which are designed to long aging. Almost no chemicals are used in the vineyards apart for protection against mildew. All grapes are hand harvested, pressed and fermented in barrel at not more than 25 degrees.

Puligny-Montrachet Wine

Cote de Beaune, Burgundy

View all products

A source of some of the finest, juicy, silky and elegantly floral Chardonnay in the Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet lies just to the north of Chassagne-Montrachet, a village with which it shares two of its Grands Crus vineyards: Le Montrachet itself and Bâtard-Montrachet. Its other two, which it owns in their entirety, are Chevalier-Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. And still, some of the finest white Burgundy wines come from the prized Premiers Crus vineyards of Puligny-Montrachet. To name a few, Les Pucelles, Le Clavoillon, Les Perrières, Les Referts and Les Combettes, as well as the rest, lie northeast and up slope from the Grands Crus.

Farther to the southeast are village level whites and the hamlet of Blagny where Pinot Noir grows best and has achieved Premier Cru status.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
