The Growers > Domaine Alain Chavy

For years Alain and his brother Jean-Louis made wine together at their parents’ estate, Gérard Chavy, but in 2003 they went their separate ways. Alain’s wines are very much in the mould of his father’s: pure, racy and delicate.

Dry summer weather meant that young vines in the Folatières suffered a little from stress, but otherwise Alain was very happy with his healthy fruit. There was little juice in the grapes, but lots of pulp, and the wines have an appealing density as well as freshness.
