With freshness and vigour to the fore, 2019 is another standout release
for Gérard Boulay's Chavignol bottling. As always, this is drawn from mature,
35- to 40-year-old vines rooted entirely in the limestone soils of Chavignol.
The multiple sites are largely sloping vineyards on the lower flanks of the
Chavignol hillside terroirs of Les Chasseignes, Les Longues Fins and La Rue de
Vaux. Importantly, Boulay also includes fruit from his younger vines growing on
the great hillside of La Grande Côte. The juice was naturally fermented and aged
for eight months in tank on lees, with a small volume also fermented in a single
large wooden cask.
