About Puligny-Montrachet 2013 Domaine Alain Chavy
The Chavy family has had roots in Puligny for almost 200 years. In 1976, after years of selling grapes to negociants, they began to bottle wine under their own label. Domaine Gerard Chavy et Fils soon established itself as one of the finest domaines in the village. However, in 2003, after a family dispute, the estate was dissolved. The brothers Jean-Louis and Alain Chavy, who had jointly run the domaine, decided to split and create their own domaines. Alain's 17 acre estate has the distinction of possessing the deepest cellar (17 feet) in Puligny. The high water table of the village makes it difficult to dig a proper cellar and as a result, most of Puligny's domaines have above ground caves that rely on air conditioning. His barrels and bottles benefit greatly from the cool, underground storage and his wines are always exceptional. This 2013 is a prime example. The Wine Spectator said about this 2013 "Clean and precise, exuding lime, hazelnut and apple flavors, this white shows balance and moderate length. Drink now through 2020." On SALE!!!
