THIS OFFER IS FOR MAGUMS
is being called one of the greatest vintages of all time, rivaling that of the near perfection 1947 vintage. These wines are tightly wound and need some time in the bottle to open up, those who are patient will be greatly rewarded. On top of this amazing vintage we have a very exciting new wine from Chavy Chouet, Premier Cru Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatieres 2018.
That wasn't a typo, the grapes for this wine are sourced from the Puligny-Montrachet region, they are either right outside the AOC limit or from younger wines. Made in the same unfiltered, limited oak, beautiful old world Burgundy style that you expect from this region and producer, but at less then half the price of Puligny-Montrachet.
Since Romaric Chavy took over from Hubert Chavy in 2014 the winery has focused more on their own production instead of mainly selling in bulk to other negociants. Chavy-Chouet is one of the oldest families in Puligny-Montrachet. The Ropiteau family (on his mother's side) is the oldest one in Meursault.
A seductive and focused Chardonnay with aromas of apple and pear with slights hints of vanilla. Harmonious and round on the palate with a medium to full body. The long finish holds hints of citrus and lemon zest. This wine is drinking great now and will do so for a few more years, meant to be enjoyed young.
