Notes

A no-brainer purchase for Pinot Noir lovers.

Romaric Chavy was just 20 years old when he took over his family domaine back in 2006. But then Romaric had decided on his career at an early stage, attending wine school at 12, where he would alternate periods of study with time spent working for his godfather, Francois Mikulski. His 13 hectares is spread over great vineyards in both Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. He works the vineyards pretty much organically, with ploughing and minimal use of sprays, but is not certified. The wines are honest, pure and elegant.

Tasting note:
'La Taupe is simply delicious Burgundian Pinot Noir and always offers impressive value. But from the 2015 vintage, this plot near Pommard shifts into 6th gear; pure raspberry and cherry fruit overlay a savoury complexity and an underlying grip. Mineral and taught, the finish is long and poised. Drink 2018-2028.' – Roland Peens (February 2017)
