The word Meix means a house, Chavaux being a compression of chef and val, signifying “uphill from the valley”. The deeper lime-marl soil of the plot contrasts with the more pebble-rich hillside Les Clous. It gives a wine of sumptuous, rounded texture and generous length. These Domaine grapes came in perfectly ripe, their natural sugars yielding 12.9 degrees. Just 12 barrels were made, which are again exclusive to HH&C (as in past years, when Franck Grux himself owned the vineyard). Colour is rich, greengolden, with splendid, complex aromas. It is a fleshy, concentrated wine, with lovely texture and a vibrant, long finish (for drinking 2021-2026+).
