Chavy-Chouet Meursault Les Vireuils
Domaine Chavy-Chouet
France - Burgundy - Meursault

The "Les Vireuils" parcel is located on the top of the hill above Meursault, right below the forest. It is a slightly cooler parcel with a limestone soil and a higher presence of rocks. The wine is sharp with a vibrant acidity and a lot of freshness, citrus and exotic fruit aromas with toasty nuances. Concentrated, powerful and lively on the palate.

2018 Chavy-Chouet Meursault Les Vireuils - 92 PTS - VINOUS

2018 Chavy-Chouet Meursault Les Vireuils - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2018 Meursault Les Vireuils comes from two parcels of vine on either side of the climat (15- and 50-year-old vines). One is a new parcel bought by Chavy (unbelievably, it was advertised on a website that Romaric Chavy happened to see; the transaction was done in a couple of weeks). It has a lovely nose of menthol-tinged citrus fruit that gains intensity with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with well-judged acidity, vivid orange zest and citrus notes and a precise, mineral-driven finish. This is a superb Les Vireuils. - Neal Martin"
