The pick of Jean-Louis Chavy’s wines is the 2010 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Folatieres. It has a very tight and controlled nose but give it a few swirls et voila! There are wonderful granitic, fume scents that begin to emerge with a shard of orange rind. The palate is fresh and vibrant, well-balanced and tense with a peacock’s tail of citrus lemon and lime on the composed finish. Very fine.
This offers good focus, with lemon, melon and buttercream notes meshing seamlessly with the lively structure. Stays vibrant and mouthwatering on the long finish.
