Upon the retirement of Gerard Chavy in 1998, the brothers Jean-Louis and Alain jointly ran the estate until 2003 when they split it with Jean-Louis creating his own estate. Jean-Louis subsequently invested heavily, building a new winery and a temperature-controlled cellar. He owns several different parcels in Puligny, totaling almost 7 hectares. He makes his wines from old (20-40+ years) vines with a restrained use of oak. Above all else, Jean-Louis’ wines show purity of fruit with superb balance and minerality.
