From 60 year old vines, sitting on a steep hillside on shallow, limestone soils, running just alongside Coche-Dury! A stunning white with layer upon layer of flavour- whipped lemon curd, white peaches, toasted almond slivers, citrus fruit and crushed rocks. Slightly hedonistic, but fresh and sprightly - a gorgeous Meursault.
With a long history of wine-making in his family and several members working close by in Puligny Montrachet, perhaps it was always fate that Romaric Chavy would make great wines. Romaric took over the family estate after the passing of his father at the tender age of 22. Whilst his father Hubert had previously been selling the bulk of his production to the top negociants, Romaric chose to swiftly transition to bottling nearly everything they produce, wasting no time in staking a claim as one of Burgundy’s next wine-making stars. Incredibly experienced for such a young winemaker, Romaric studied from a young age, before working with his godfather and Meursault magician, François Mikulski, as well as gaining valuable experience abroad in Spain, South Africa and Greece. The wines are full and rich, but with a wonderful freshness and vitality that makes them a pleasure to drink in their youth.
FROM THE PRESS
“The 2018 Meursault Les Narvaux comes from vines located just below the forest that tend to ripen later than the domaine’s other parcels. It has a very pure bouquet of apricot blossom, hazelnut and sea spray aromas, well defined and focused. The palate is fresh and vibrant, slightly richer than the Les Vireuils, and the captivating, spicy, nutty finish could only come from Meursault. Excellent. Drink: 2022-2035. ”91 points Neal Martin (Vinous)
“Wafting from the glass with scents of fresh peach, honeycomb, pear and warm pastry, the 2018 Meursault Les Narvaux is medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, racy acids and a textural but incisive profile. Already unwinding after its bottling last year, it's more immediate and demonstrative than the 2017 rendition. Drink: 2021-2035. (Oct 2020)”91 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate)
