Chavy-Chouet has something to prove, and this young gun from Meursault has quickly caught the eye of many savvy Burgundy drinkers. The past few vintages here have truly seen an upward trend in quality, and 2019 looks to be the best yet. Super detailed winemaking, this is focused and precise, which is one of the perfect marriages with Meursault's generosity. We have a few cases of this available at sharp pricing, and this should be one of the best buys of the vintage for Meursault.

Owner Romaric Chavy is the family's 8th generation to run this estate, connected to one of the oldest wine-making families in Puligny Montrachet. The Ropiteau family (on his mother's side) is the oldest 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. 2019 is another great vintage for Chavy ant, slightly more approachable than 2018, but should prove excellent in the cellar. It is a fantastic buy for Meursault Genevrieres, where wines can easily go for double this price. Chavy-Chouet is still relatively unknown here but is a great young producer slowly building in popularity and is one of the addresses to buy from now before the prices start creeping up.
Vinous (Neil Martin) 93 points! "The 2019 Meursault Genevrières 1er Cru has a refined bouquet of honeysuckle, buttercup and light toasty aromas that blossom in the glass; the 20% new oak is neatly integrated. The palate is well balanced with a slightly honeyed entry. Traces of wild honey and stem ginger furnish the persistent finish. A rich and generous Meursault, classy and decidedly tasty."
