The Chavy family has had roots in Puligny for almost 200 years. In 1976, after years of selling grapes to negociants, they began to bottle wine under their own label. Alain and his brother worked with their father, Gerard up until his retirement. The brothers worked the domaine together until 2003 until they split and decided to create their own domaines. Though Alain does not own any land in the Grand Cru area, he is able to exude the attributes and quality of of Puligny Montrachet through its finest premier crus. Alain makes a restrained style of Puligny with ripe (but never over ripe) fruit balanced by crisp acidity, which are designed to long aging.
