About Domaine Chavy 2017 Puligny-Montrachet, Les Folatieres 1er Cru

The estate of Gerard Chavy has now been split into two separate estates by his sons, Jean-Louis Chavy, and Alain Chavy. Jean-Louis has built a brand new winemaking facility and a deep temperature controlled cellar at the bottom of the village. Vinification is classic barrel fermentation with temperature control and only natural yeasts. For the elevage of the wines the use of new oak is restrained with just 25% new oak for Premier Crus. This Puligny Montrachet 1er cru "Folatieres"is from two separate plots of 25-45 year old vines, one in the steepest stoniest part close to Blagny which contributes excellent acidity and structure. The other part is from lower down where the soil is richer and this part gives greater richness and depth to the wine. This shows wonderful intensity and generosity.

Vinous scored this 92 points saying "The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru has a slight reduction on the nose that denies it the delineation of its village cru counterpart at the moment. The well-balanced palate is bright and vivid (as I suspect the aromatics will be after 18-24 months in bottle) and displays a crisp line of acidity. There is impressive tension on the finish. Very fine."
