Perhaps the most complete Chavy wine, combining silken elegance, with cool, high toned power. The most floral and mineral of the group, with a certain discreteness and poise. Fantastic bright fruit and soft acidity which is present on the front palate and really carries the finish. Considering the warmth of the vintage, this is a […]Add to cart Producer: Jean-Louis Chavy
