Produced on a plot of 3.3 hectares, the grapes are all hand harvested as the sloping site prevents mechanical assistance. The Chavigne is 100% Chardonnay and the result of a combination of several parcels of fruit, as well as the first presses of the ‘Tri de Chavigne’. The vines are planted at a density of 11,000 vines a hectare and yields of 300-400g of fruit per vine with just six to eight bunches. The wine’s depth and finesse is something to behold. There’s the depth, and something of the style, you would expect of a truly outstanding 1er cru Meursault. The balance across the palate is so fine and silky with all kinds of stone fruits and preserved lemon before the nutty, ground spice notes kick in on the very long finish. Outstanding white Burgundy with more class than many a 1er Cru. Outstanding value.
