ABOUT THE WINERY


DOMAINE CHAVY-CHOUET


A modern winery, with roots in the traditions. Chavy-Chouet today has 15 hectares of vineyards in the best part of the Cote de Beaune; Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Hard work in the vineyard has over the past many years replaced herbicides in the vineyard, which helps to give a purer expression of the character of the grapes. Since 2006, Romaric Chavy has been in charge of production. Romaric has built up his knowledge of viticulture through traveling around to several different wine districts. The goal is to produce wines with great respect for nature and the course of life in the vineyard.


Et moderne vineri, med rødder i traditionerne. Chavy-Chouet har i dag 15 hektar vinmarker i den bedste del af Cote de Beaune; Meursault og Puligny-Montrachet. Hårdt arbejde i vinmarken har gennem de seneste mange år afløst herbicider i vinmarken, hvilket er med til at give et mere rent udtryk af druernes karakter.

Siden 2006 har Romaric Chavy stået for produktionen. Romaric har opbygget sin viden omkring vindyrkning gennem rejse rundt til flere forskellige vindistrikter. Målet er at fremstille vine med stor respekt for naturen og livets gang i vinmarken.


    General grape descriptions



    Chardonnay


    Wine drinkers find it flatteringly easy to enjoy, with its broad, exuberant charms, relatively high alcohol and low acidity, and lack of powerful scent. Vine growers find it easy to grow productively and profitably (it can yield well, ripen usefully early, although buds rather too early for frost-free comfort in cool climates). And winemakers revel in the range of different winemaking techniques to which Chardonnay readily submits: not just a wide range of dry white wines with more weight than most, but delicate sparkling wines and even a few extremely successful sweet white wines made with the benefit of 'noble rot'.
