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.

Lismore Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Floral notes of passion flower and fynbos, granadilla, gooseberry and pear on the palate along with an underlying minerality which gives this unique terroir driven wine its signature.

 


Reviews:


"It wasn't easy to make world class Sauvignon Blancs in a vintage like 2018, but Sam O'Keefe managed it with some style. This is an equal blend of grapes from Greyton and Walker Bay with fermentation in concrete eggs and 500-litre wood, showing notes of kelp and rock pools, with stylish gunflint and grapefruit overtones. 2019-25 Cape South Coast (13%)"

Michelet Petit Chablis 2019

Golden color. White flowers, fresh, lime and citrus aromas. Pleasant mouthfeel, supple, crisp, fruity flavors.

Machine harvested at full maturity (around Sep. 25th - lasts 12-18 days); pneumatic press; fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks for 8-10 days; M.L (2 months after the harvest); aging on the lees until February; racking; fining if necessary; cold stabilization; filtration right before bottling in April.

Ideal as an aperitif, the wine is an excellent companion to seafood.

Chartron & Trebuchet Chablis 2020

Chartron & Trebuchet Chablis is Chardonnay. 

The Chablis region is a limestone plateau cut by valleys. The Premier Crus lie on a stratum dating from the Kimmeridgian (155 millions years BC), with alternating marl and limestone and tiny deposits of oysters in the rock, reminiscent of the warm and shallow sea which then covered Burgundy. Yields are 60 hl/ha.

Located in northern Burgundy near Auxerre, the Chablis vineyards are alongside a small river aptly named the "Serein" (meaning Serene). 

Clear pale golden color. The nose is both floral and mineral. The palate reflects the nose with fresh notes of citrus, chalk and green tea. The finish is accurate and crystalline.

Perfect with hot oysters or fish in sauce, but also with white meats in sauce (veal, poultry). Sushi pairs perfectly with its minerality. Goat cheese, Blue cheese and comté cheese.

Chartron & Trebuchet Montagny Blanc 2020

Chartron & Trebuchet Montagny Blanc is made from 100% Chardonnay


The bright acidity found in Chardonnay from this region, mixed with the underlying mineral note, creates a wine that steps outside the boundary of the classic Burgundy Chardonnay. Notes of honeysuckle and spring flowers fill the nose. On the palate, the juice is fresh and lively with flavors of white peach and ripe pear. Rich, refined and delicate with mineral hints pulling together on the finish.

In 1936, the four villages of Buxy, Montagny-lès-Buxy, Jully-lès-Buxy and Saint-Vallerin were joined together to form the AOC of Montagny. The vineyards are located on slopes 250-400 meters above sea level and are oriented to the east and southeast. Yields are 55 hectoliters / hectare.

The south facing vineyards of these villages are known for their pebbled limestone soil, and because of this common soil characteristic, the wines of Montagny are characterized by their slight flinty note. 

Its freshness and finesse allow it to be enjoyed as an aperitif. It also pairs well with white meat and sauce. At the sea side, it will be perfect with a plate of shellfish (lobster, scallops) steamed or poached or noble fish just fried, grilled or steamed. Cheeses: Goat cheese, Beaufort Comté, Emmental and more.

Chartron & Trebuchet Santenay Blanc 2017

Chartron & Trebuchet Santenay Blanc is 100% Chardonnay.

The wine is clear and brilliant, mineral and floral, fresh and vigorous. Its aromatic expression features notes of bracken fern and hazelnut.

Its lightness, vivacity and edge would be a good choice for fluid and creamy like pasta or risotto with mushrooms. It would harmonize well with cheeses like Comté and goat cheeses.

Chartron & Trebuchet Chablis Premier Cru Beauroy 2020

Chartrons et Trebuchet Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy is a crisp and clean Chardonnay that offers a rich and intense bouquet of fresh citrus fruits and white flowers. The mouth is round, ample and powerful. The rich and rounded palate is expressive and voluptuous with a mineral character and good acidity. A long finish. Delicious.

Chartrons et Trebuchet Chablis 1er Cru Beauroy is a perfect match with cooked oysters or fish in sauce, white meats (veal, poultry), sushi, goat cheese, blue cheese and Comté.

Review:

"Fresh notes of chalk and lemon beckon from the glass, clothed in subtle smoke. The gentleness continues on the palate where Mirabelle fruit has an inviting streak of lemon. The ripeness of 2018 is expressed in the warm finish, but overall this is a very balanced, fresh wine. - Anne KREBIEHL MW"
