Alain Chavy

Domaine Alain Chavy, Puligny-Montrachet, 1er Cru Clavoillon 2017

RRP £50.68

After their father died, Alain and his brother Jean-Louis decided to create individual domaines by splitting each appellation, so that you can taste a parallel set from each domaine. Alain got to keep the ‘big’ house. They both make wine in a quite a forward style – this has a creamy citrus aroma with some oak evident. Lightly and softy rounded, it has a gentle palate, just nicely balanced. There is attractive ripe white peach and floral on the finish. Charming rather than exciting.
