2009 Chavy-Chouet, Bourgogne Chardonnay Les FremelottesNov. 2010
Just 20 metres from the Puligny villages appellation, from vines that almost wrap around the winery of Château du Puligny-Montrachet. An important cuvée for the domaine as there are almost 10,000 bottles. Fresh, clean aromas, eventually a little herb and more fruit. There is plenty of depth and just a little padding too. The acidity is the first impression but there’s no lack of balance eventually. Almost good.
2009 Chavy-Chouet, Meursault Les GenevrièresNov. 2010
More aromatic depth with some green herbs. Concentrated and showing good acidity and intensity. In the middle this is quite mineral before a slightly savoury finish. This is very good – I like it – no ‘old-style Genevrières flab here!
2009 Chavy-Chouet, Meursault Clos des Corvées de CiteauxNov. 2010
Part of the appellation of l’Ormeau; 0.96 hectares which was an old property of the Cistercian monks who made a two metre wall around the vines, consequently it’s a hot place on a summer afternoon – one of the earliest ripening plots in Meursault. The nose is forward, wider and a hint sweeter. Concentrated and quite full in the mouth and not a little rich. ‘Cliché Meursault’ but a good one with fine length.
2009 Chavy-Chouet, Puligny-Montrachet Les EncegnièresNov. 2010
The nose has a width of aromas, initially just a little diffuse but focus improves in the glass. There is lovely attack and a smooth texture. Just enough acidity – this is lovely.
