Chavy-Chouet Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien
Domaine Chavy-Chouet
France - Burgundy - Saint-Aubin Premier Cru

This Premier Cru is produced from 30 year-old vines overlooking the grand crus of Puligny-Montrachet. The vines grow on limestone soils covered with white pebble stones.

The altitude and the poor soil result in a fine, subtle wine with bright acidity. It is a feminine wine that evolves slowly with floral and spicy notes before taking on greater density and revealing its power.

2017 Chavy-Chouet Saint-Aubin Premier Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien - 92 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"The 2017 Saint-Aubin Les Murgers des Dents de Chien 1er Cru comes from a parcel that was actually forest until 1986. Romaric Chavy told me it is always the last vineyard to ripen. It has a fragrant bouquet with apricot blossom, fresh pear and light nectarine aromas, all very seductive. The palate is very well balanced, very pure with a fine bead of acidity. This feels very harmonious and utterly seductive. You could easily drink this now although it will sure age in bottle. Superb. - Neal Martin"
