Domaine Gerard Chavy

Chavys have been in Puligny for nearly 200 years, yet it was not until 1986 that the domaine began to bottle its own wine. Previously all was sold off in bulk to négociants. Today this benchmark domaine is run by Alain Chavy and is one of the best in Puligny.

Alain has a clutch of different Puligny 1er Crus, all of which vividly demonstrate the difference between their respective terroirs. Alain himself is extremely modest, yet it is eminently clear that he has Puligny running through his veins, with few producers making better wines then these stylish, well-made, characterful examples.

He aims for a style that is neither overtly fruit-driven nor oak-based. Their wines emphasise the mineral notes of Puligny and are models of finesse and elegance. Alain and his brother, Jean Louis split the domaine in half with Jean Louis taking half of the vineyards to his own domaine in 2003.
