Winemaker Notes

Aromas of summer fruit and ripe plums. Good intensity on the palate with a steely focus and a long, intense finish.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

Plump and opulent, this wine’s baked-yellow-apple flavors come with enough zesty freshness to keep them firm and clean. Notes of flint and salted cream add to the wine’s mineral depths. It’s a savory Puligny that needs two or three years to fully emerge.

Jean-Louis Chavy, France
Upon the retirement of Gerard Chavy in 1998, the brothers Jean-Louis and Alain jointly ran the estate until 2003 when they split it with Jean-Louis creating his own estate. Jean-Louis subsequently invested heavily, building a new winery and a temperature-controlled cellar. He owns several different parcels in Puligny, totaling almost 7 hectares. He makes his wines from old (20-40+ years) vines with a restrained use of oak. Above all else, Jean-Louis’ wines show purity of fruit with superb balance and minerality.

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.
