Burgundy 2022: Domaine Chavy-Chouet

The charismatic Romaric Chavy presides over this significant (15+ hectare) domaine based in Meursault.  Romaric comes across as particularly easy-going, even laissez faire, yet his wines positively reverberate with nervous energy.

As a Meursault estate Chavy-Chouet’s whites have always taken centre stage.  The style is whistle-clean and ultra-precise, with incisive acidity giving shape to fleshy orchard fruit characters.  Describing a previous vintage, William Kelley (The Wine Advocate) summarised the style as, “pure, tensile wines that are typically distinguished by their racy acids and aromatic precision.

Since we first visited in 2019, Romaric has further refined his style but the bigger news is the uptick in quality of his red wines.  Today, Chavy-Chouet is a producer of engaging, fruit-driven, crunchy and gourmand Pinot Noir.  Imagine you stroll into a Beaune cafe and are looking for the ideal glass of modest red to pair with a plate of saucisson – look no further than the Bourgogne La Taupe.

“Beaucoup de buvabilité” says Romaric, meaning that this is for drinking, not sipping.
– from Jasper Morris MW’s review of Bourgogne La Taupe 2022

For 2022 we have secured a range of Chavy-Chouet en magnum.  Big vintages are a great excuse to buy magnums, and there’s little doubt that wine ages and tastes better from large formats.  As prices shoot to the skies it becomes harder to justify big bottles of Grand Crus, so we are buying these more sparingly, but we thrilled to offer some village Crus and Saint Aubin in magnums – and we highly recommend tucking a few away.

Domaine Chavy-Chouet is cresting a wave as the wines grow in popularity and renown yet the wines still deliver on value.  This range of pure and elegant 2022s – all around a featherweight 13% alcohol – is sure to build their reputation even higher – from stunning Bourgogne, to over-achieving village lieux dits, to a smattering of classy 1er Crus.
Have a great weekend,
