Domaine Chavy-Chouet ‘Les Femelottes’ 2018: Puligny-Montrachet in all but name
Better than many Puligny-Montrachets costing more than twice the price, Domaine Chavy-Chouet ‘Les Femelottes’ is a rounded, expressive wine of exceptional flavour and class.
This gorgeous Bourgogne Blanc is literally a stride or two away from being named Puligny-Montrachet; the vineyards of ‘Les Femelottes’ lie just across the road from the famous Puligny-Montrachet vines.
The wine has a rich body, with wonderful freshness and vitality, a delightful buttery note on the palate and incredible length. Jancis Robinson is a great fan and gave ‘Les Femelottes’ the following commendation, ‘Very cool and refreshing on the nose. Very nicely balanced and with real Côte d’Or build. Raciness and a dry finish. Delicate and appetising.’ 100% Chardonnay.
Case of 12 bottles. Non-Members £330. CCUK Members £229 with free UK mainland delivery.
