"Romaric Chavy, who succeeded his father Hubert at the helm of this 13-hecare domaine in early 2006, is a young but experienced vigneron producing pure, tensile wines that are typically distinguished by their racy acids and aromatic precision. Tangy but not reductive, the wines start out life quite tight-knit and blossom in bottle. Winemaking is simple, with élevage lasting for some 12 months on the lees in barrels mainly from Tonnellerie Gillet, some 20% of which are new for the higher appellations. The portfolio culminates with several superior Puligny and Meursault lieux-dits and four premiers crus in the same communes, reflecting this long-established family's roots in both villages." - William Kelly (Wine Advocate)

 

"The 2018 Meursault Les Casses-Têtes comes from vines on rocky soils, less decomposed than other climats, where Romaric Chavy explained it is crucial to pick at exactly the right time. This has an intense bouquet of crushed stone, orange peel and light oyster shell aromas. The palate is taut and fresh on the entry, delivering a fine bead of acidity and tangerine and light mango notes, and spicier than the Les Narvaux, with a little more cohesion on the persistent finish. This is superb. 93 points" - Vinous
