Chartron & Trebuchet Pouilly-Fuisse 2016

Pale gold color with green highlights. The wine offers an amazing purity of fruit with enticing aromas of citrus (lemon and grapefruit) supported by a mineral character, toasty notes and roasted peanuts. The wine is rich, generous and elegant in the mouth with complex flavors and a mineral finish.

This Pouilly Fuissé is delicious as an aperitif or with mild tasting cheese (camembert, brie, blue, goat, gruyere...).

Chartron & Trebuchet Montagny Blanc 2015

Chartron & Trebuchet Montagny Blanc is made from 100% Chardonnay
Very attractive wine, with a nice gold, with green tints. Delicate bouquet with a hint of hazelnuts and ferns. Slightly mineral, and full of fruit with a beautiful lingering flavor.

Wine of character and finesse. Ideal with shellfish, oysters, grilled or fried fish and fish prepared with sauce.

Chartron & Trebuchet Santenay Blanc 2015

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.

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.

Avennia Sestina Red Blend 2015

Avennia Sestina Red Blend is made from 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

The Sestina is a poetic form from Medieval France. Just as a contemporary poet can use an old form like the Sestina to express modern ideas, we use the traditional Bordeaux blend to make modern wines that express Washington fruit. Sestina is our vision for an old vine blend where the focus is on structure, balance, and complexity. This wine is designed for the cellar, but is enjoyable now.

Sestina: This wine is a blockbuster, with black currant, black raspberry, saddle leather, freshly tilled earth, vanilla, and violet on the nose. Exceedingly rich and balanced on the palate, with great poise and structure for long aging. The finish echoes with fresh black fruits, minerally touches, and floral notes.

Review:

"The 2015 Sestina is showing very well, offering up a rich, more exuberant bouquet than the 2014 rendition. This emphasizes notes of cassis, black plums, dark chocolate, espresso roast and a subtle framing of new oak. On the palate, it's full-bodied and lavish but controlled, with an ample, more sun-kissed core of fruit and fine-grained structuring tannins. Like the 2014, it's a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. While the 2014 and 2015 are quite different in style, it's hard to choose between them qualitatively. While it needs a few years in the cellar, I suspect the 2015 will hit its peak sooner. - William Kelley"
