Domaine Philippe Chavy Bourgogne Chardonnay 2009

Terrific value from a top vintage in Burgundy

Reviewed by mmp19800_33259 - Wednesday 11 September 2013 12:46 PM

The Chavy family, based in the village of Meursault, have owned vineyards in both their home village and in Puligny-Montrachet for several generations. I understand this wine is a cellar blend from both of these villages, but on the palate it says Puligny more than Meursault. I have seen this wine a number of times. In 2010 it was a bit oaky but by 2012 as the oak had better integrated the wine and it was "available to drink". It has continued to develop into a very harmonious fully-bodied (2009 was a very ripe vintage) white Burgundy and is now perfectly into its drinking cycle, which will continue for a few years yet. Fantastic with white meats. I give it a big score for such a lowly appellation, but it was a great vintage which, so the saying goes "raises all boats".
