2017 Alain Chavy ‘Les Charmes’ Puligny-Montrachet
Vinous 90 ~ The 2017 Puligny-Montrachet Les Charmes, which comes from 1.80-hectares of vine, matures in 25 percent new oak. It offers hints of white flower and brioche on the nose that gently unfolds in the glass. The palate certainly has more tension and a sense of energy compared to the Puligny Village, with good salinity and a light spiciness towards the finish. This is worth seeking out.
