Availability: In Stock
Excluding GST: S$205.00
Philippe Chavy has the drive and knowledge to craft top quality Burgundies. He already has the right appellations, having taken over in 2002 a little more than over 3 hectares of prime vineyards from his parents. In fact, he is one of the few growers to have an equal footing in both Puligny-Montrachet (through vines coming from his father’s side of the family) and in Meursault (through his maternal side). The domaine now extends over eight hectares, in thirty parcels scattered ad hoc throughout the two villages.
Soil is worked, there is strictly no use of herbicides or insecticides and for several years Philippe has followed the cycles of the lunar calendar when determining work in the vineyards as well as when to rack and bottle his wines.
More subtle on the nose compared with the Corvée des Vignes but a step up in intensity on the palate, both in rich citrus fruit and oak spice. Powerful and long. Terrific wine.
