The pick of Jean-Louis Chavy’s wines is the 2012 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres. It has a very tight and controlled nose but give it a few swirls et voila! There are wonderful granitic, fume scents that begin to emerge with a shard of orange rind. The palate is fresh and vibrant, well-balanced and tense with a peacock’s tail of citrus lemon and lime on the composed finish. Very fine. Drink 2016-2026. ||Having reviewed brother Alain Chavy’s wines earlier this year, it is only correct that I pay attention to his brother’s. Both domaines were formed in 2003, when their father divided the holdings of Domaine Gerard Chavy et Fils. Jean-Louis’s parcels total 6.9 hectares that are cultivated lutte raisonee, fermented naturally and matured in oak for 15-18 months. Like Alain’s wines, these are well worth seeking out although at present, I was unable to locate a U.S. distributor.||No known US importer. eRobertParker.com.June, 2014
