About the Producer

The story of the Chavy family dates back over six generations to 1820. It began with Gérard, who acquired the estate and extended the land under vine year on year. In 1971 Gérard, Jean-Louis’ father took over the business and increased the area of vines from year to year. In 2002 it was the turn of Jean-Louis, Gérard’s son, to take over the helm. He oversaw the construction of a new winery, the acquisition of new plots, and a more modern approach to the vinification process, all of which improved the quality of the estate’s wines. Jean-Louis’ son Paul then stepped up in 2020, returning to the estate after studying winegrowing and oenology and gaining some valuable professional experiences. He also developed a new and prestigious négoce business for the estate to widen out the range.

Vineyard and Winery

The village of Puligny-Montrachet is ideally situated between Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault. It is home to some of the very best terroir for the production of exceptional white wines. The soil in Puligny-Montrachet comprises varying ratios of clay and limestone and some vines are even planted on the mother rock. They grow on gradients of between 10-15%

Eleven months in the barrel followed by a further seven in stainless-steel tanks. 15-20% new barrels.

From ten small parcels of 20-60 year old vines. Les Tremblot, (“more Puligny in character, as the soil is argileous,” says Jean-Louis); Les Meix, Les Levrons (more rounded wine for there are more stones and gravel here and it is not so heavy), Corvée des Vignes and Les Reuchaux. These small vineyard holdings are all just below the premier cru’s close to the village and cover the diversity of Puligny from north to south. Just 20% new oak for this wine which always shows excellent balance and drinking pleasure from an early age.
