"Domaine Alain Chavy Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru 2014 needed a couple of minutes in the glass to awaken. It is beautifully focused, albeit not as complex perhaps as either the Les Pucelles or the Folatières. There are touches of green apple and a dab of apricot blossom here, but it is keeping its mineral side covered. The palate is quite opulent on the entry. This is all “curves” and no straight lines in the mouth, with lower acidity than the 2013 last year with a long, slightly honeyed finish that has great persistence. I don't envisage this to be quite as cerebral as the 2013, although it will surely give more sensual pleasure over the next 8-12 years. 92-94 Points"

Alain Chavy has swapped four barrels of his premier cru Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières for a barrel of Chevalier-Montrachet juice for about five years now. His winemaking style emphasises the minerality of the vineyard and he judiciously employs new oak.
