"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."

Product Description:

"Hubert Chavy-Chouet is a handsome, agile and disarmingly charming individual with a reputation of being quite the ladies' man. He might even point out the fact that he closely resembles Bruce Willis, and why not flatter him by agreeing. The day we visited, in January 2006, it was cold and very wintry, and the winery and house, in the middle of Meursault, were covered with a thick layer of new snow. Hubert was dressed rather punkish-like with zippered jeans, shaved head and two earrings in one ear, with his faithful English Bulldog at his side. Always the joker, he pretended to slip in the snow and nearly drop the bottles of wine he was bringing up from his cellar beneath his house.

Hubert Chavy-Chouet is the seventh generation to make wine in his family. He began his winery in 1982 and his son and daughter are hoping to carry on the family tradition. Chavy-Chouet is one of the oldest families in Puligny-Montrachet. The Ropiteau family (on his mother's side) is the oldest one in Meursault." Importer
