2017 Jean-Louis Chavy, Puligny-Montrachet

99 Point Puligny Pick Of The Year!
One word, "Outstanding!"

We're not sure if anything in life is "perfect;" but if there is, the 2017 Jean-Louis Chavy Puligny-Montrachet would be it!

This beautiful white Burgundy is seamlessly integrated, boasting the best attributes of a much talked about and highly-prized white Burgundy vintage: graceful fruit, balanced acidity, and a long finish.

Our first impression was a visceral, "Outstanding!"

A wave of freshness wafts from the glass revealing citrus blossom, stone fruit, and fresh apple; the aromatics precede a near perfect palate.

Pure and fantastically integrated on entry, no one element pushes or pulls; rather, the flavors and textures effortlessly play off one another. White peach, chalky minerality, blanched almond, Anjou pear, spice and (barely) a hint of vanilla bean all reveal themselves harmoniously.

The 2017 Burgundies are some of the best Chardonnays in years. 2017 is a classic vintage reminiscent of the outstanding 2004's. These wines offer, "great quality and charm." Vinous

Every now and then, we come across a Chardonnay like this one and can't help but utter, "Now that is what a white Burgundy is supposed to taste like."

Enjoy!

One word, "Outstanding!" The 2017 Jean-Louis Chavy Puligny-Montrachet is the best Puligny of the vintage (and we've tasted a lot of white Burgundies from this vintage). A wave of freshness wafts from the glass revealing citrus blossom, stone fruit, and fresh apple; the aromatics precede a near-perfect palate. Pure and fantastically integrated on entry, no one element pushes or pulls; rather, the flavors and textures effortlessly play off one another. White peach, chalky minerality, blanched almond, Anjou pear, spice and (barely) a hint of vanilla bean all reveal themselves harmoniously.
