Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Femelottes
Domaine Chavy-Chouet
France - Burgundy - Bourgogne AOC

The grapes are grown in the Puligny-Montrachet area, either just outside of the AOC limit or from younger vines.

This is a charming, rich, focused and delightful white. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture, the wine has a fresh backbone of acidity, clean apple and citrus flavors, and an excellent balance. A most refreshing quaff and one that is great value. A delicate, expressive wine of exceptional quality.

2017 Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Femelottes - 90 PTS - VINOUS

2017 Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Femelottes - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2017 Bourgogne Blanc Les Femelottes comes from five parcels from 15 to 60 years old vines adjacent to the Puligny-Montrachet village crus. It has a lovely, almond and white chocolate scented bouquet that is very well defined. The palate is well balanced with a fine thread of acidity, a touch of bitter lemon and frangipane towards the composed, quite phenolic finish. There is a lot in this regional white and it represents great value.- Neal Martin"

2014 Chavy-Chouet Bourgogne Blanc Femelottes - 90 PTS - Decanter

decanter logo 250"The Chavy family, located in and around Puligny-Montrachet, used to sell the bulk of their production to negociants until their son, Romaric, took over. This is a mini Puligny-Montrachet without the price tag. It is rounded, rich and complex with ripe apple flavours and a citrus peel intensity. Very classy and it will certainly impress at a dinner party. - Christelle Guibert"
