White wine. Burgundy, France. Biodynamic. 100% Chardonnay. "Philippe Chavy only has a very small parcel in les Pucelles- enough to produce three barrels per year, so this is his most limited premier cru bottling. Like all of his plots, these are old vines, having been planted in 1947. This is an excellent example of Pucelles in the making, but it was bottled in a slightly reductive state and will need some bottle age to blossom properly. The bouquet, with a bit of coaxing, offers up a refined blend of white peach, apple, spring flowers, a touch of iodine, crème patissière, chalky soil tones and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and tightly-knit today, with a good core, fine soil signature, bright acids and lovely length and grip on the still quite primary finish. This is a very stylish bottle of Pucelles in the making, but in its reductive youth, it either needs to be decanted for a good thirty minutes to drink now, or just tucked away in the cellar for a handful of years to let it blossom. Fine juice." — 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #85 (January/February 2020)
