Vinous Reverie Notes
Importer: The names Sauzet, Carillon and Leflaive have become synonymous with Puligny, but one local clan has remained under the radar. The Chavy family has had roots in Puligny for almost 200 years. In 1976, after years of selling grapes to négociants, they began to bottle wine under their own label, and 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, went their separate ways, each determined to build his own legacy. Alain Chavy is the owner of Chavy-Martin and has some pretty incredible holdings. In addition to Le Champs Gain, other prestigious plots include Les Folatières, Les Pucelles and a precious parcel in Le Clavoillon. Tasting Notes: ‘Les Champs Gains’ is a Puligny-Montrachet Cru that benefits from a high altitude terroir and limestone soils, instilling in its wines aromatic purity, richness of flavor and a clear minerality – all beautifully displayed in this wine.
