This Burgundian wine, from one of the best plots in Meursault and bordering Puligny-Montrachet, is a refined expression of craftsmanship and terroir. Made from hand-harvested Chardonnay grapes, the wine rests for 48 hours in new barrels after pressing and then ages for 12 months in oak, 20% of which is new. The result is a rich, elegant wine with a creamy start, notes of ripe white fruit, hazelnut and a subtle minerality. Perfect to combine with dishes such as lobster, turbot or stir-fried swordfish with ginger and soy. The Les Charmes vineyards are known for their generous and characterful wines, including this exceptional Meursault 'Les Charmes' 1er Cru from Domaine Chavy-Chouet.

About the winery:

Chavy-Chouet is one of the oldest families in Puligny-Montrachet. Owner Romaric Chavy, who took over the domain in 2014, is the eighth generation of winemaking in his family. Romaric learned to make wine from his father, Hubert Chavy, who founded the winery in 1982. Romaric Chavy has, as he puts it, dedicated his life to 'winegrowing with a free-spirited, intense, and dynamic approach'. His ambition is to make top wines that reflect the essence of their regions of origin - Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Volnay and Pommard. But whether it concerns AOP Burgundy wines or Premier Crus, Romaric cares for all his plots with the same love and attention. And… with respect for nature! He farms the 15 hectares that Romaric owns as organically as possible. Following his father, Romaric does not filter his wines, but allows their purity to express themselves.
