2018 Domaine Chavy Chouet Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrieres

$89.99
2018 Domaine Chavy Chouet Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrieres
 Romaric Chavy, the owner, is an 8th generation of the family to run this estate and is one of the oldest wine-making families in Puligny Montrachet. The Ropiteau family (on his mother's side) is the oldest one in Meursault. Romaric is charismatic and a perfectionist, paying attention to every detail of the wine-growing and making process. He farms sustainability, and the vines for his Meursault Genevieres were planted in 1943 and produce tiny, concentrated berries. 2018 should provide great drinking in a year or two and last a decade or more—one of the early candidates of tremendous and affordable white Burgundy of the vintage from a producer that is slowly starting to gain traction but is still so rare here in the US.
Vinous (Neil Martin) 94 pts! The 2018 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru comes from a small parcel planted in 1943 that tends toward millerandé during the growing season. It has a lovely bouquet, very well defined, with scents of hazelnut, white flowers, clementine and quince. The palate is supremely well balanced with a killer line of acidity, precise and mineral-driven. There is impressive detail and concentration on the finish. Outstanding.
