Domaine Jean-Louis Chavy - Puligny-Montrachet, 1er Cru Les Perrières, France, 2015
Domaine Jean-Louis Chavy, Puligny-Montrachet, 1er Cru Les Perrières, France, 2015 (92 TSW).
Jean-Louis is one of the sons of Gerard Chavy. He and his brother split the family vineyards up between them, but share the Bourgogne Blanc, village Puligny Montrachet, the lieu-dit Charmes, as well as Premiers Crus Champs Gain, Clavoillons, and Folatières. In addition, Jean-Louis controls the Premier Cru Perrières parcel, which is the wine which we are tasting today.
Intense medium-yellow color, traditional Puligny style with impressions of ripe green apple, white peach, pear butter and toast.
Juicy acidity, restrained oak, mineral complexity and elegant. Long finish, very elegant and without any noticeable oak influence.
Great with Dover sole, risotto with shrimps and safran and smoked salmon carpaccio in olive oil and lemon juice.
