Product Description


Lemon yellow, clear and bright, with light green reflections. An already very flattering nose on notes of toast, orange and jasmine. A rich and generous palate with great aromatic precision and a beautiful acidity in the finish... All the characteristics of a great Meursault are gathered here!

GEOGRAPHICAL SITUATION:
In the heart of the Côte de Beaune, between 200 and 300 meters above sea level and facing East / Southeast, the vineyards surround the picturesque village of Meursault.

SOIL TYPE:
The vineyards find their excellence on calcareous marl.

VINEYARD:
It is Chardonnay which is best suited to the land of the Côte de Beaune. This excellent land was highlighted by the Cistercian monks from the year 1098. 
Average
age of vines: 30 years. 
The vines are worked using integrated viticulture. 
Plantations: 10,000 vines / hectare. 
Yield: 40 hectoliters / hectare.

HARVEST:
Harvest by hand.

VINIFICATION:
Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery in pneumatic presses. The alcoholic fermentation is carried out in oak barrels, 50% new oak.

AGEING:
The wine is aged for 16 months in oak barrels with regular stirring to gain depth and complexity.

Blends elegantly with meat and fish with a noble and beautiful texture (veal or chicken in white sauce, roasted sea bass, but also foie gras) or grilled seafood and sauce (shrimp, lobster ...). Delicious as an aperitif and with cheeses with a light taste (Camembert, Brie, Blue cheese, Goat cheese, Gruyere...).


Winery: Chartron et Trebuchet

The Chartron et Trebuchet Estate
Owners of Premiers and Grands Crus in Puligny-Montrachet since 1859 with the Domaine Jean Chartron, Jean-René Chartron founded the Maison Chartron et Trébuchet in 1984 with Louis Trébuchet, manager of a wine trading company.
Vincent Sauvestre acquired the company in 2004. His objective is to continue to promote the great white wines of Burgundy, whilst respecting and perpetuating the quality work achieved by Jean Chartron and Louis Trébuchet.

The Maison Chartron et Trébuchet specialises in producing great white Burgundy wines. The know-how of the winemakers begins with a radical selection of the very best plots: the highest-quality terroirs of the Côte are chosen and the grapes are carefully monitored throughout the ripening period. Grapes are hand-picked when the balance between acidity and sweetness is at its prime: the fruit must not be too ripe so that the full potential of the terroir is maintained, including its acidity, to ensure that the wines age properly. All of the winemaking is done in casks: the alcoholic fermentation is followed by malolactic fermentation. A proportion of 20 to 40% of new barrels is used, depending on the appellations and the vintage. Wines are left to age for 12 to 18 months depending on the appellations.

 

The Chartron et Trebuchet Vineyards
Chartron et Trébuchet's vineyards are all planted on Limestone and Clay based soils. In average, the age of the vines is 30 years old.

Alain Jaume Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail 2015

Alain Jaume Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail  is made from 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah.
Deep red garnet color. Aromas of ripe and black fruits. On the palate the wine is rich, powerful and harmonious - well balanced with wild berry and pepper dominating.


Reviews:
 

Another winner is the 2015 Gigondas Terrasses de Montmirail. Coming from higher elevation sites and mostly limestone soils, its vibrant purple color is followed by beautiful spice, black raspberry, kirsch and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, balanced and polished, with plenty of fruit yet also solid underlying ripe tannic structure, buy a case and enjoy bottles over the coming 7-8 years.
