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"

Chartron & Trebuchet Puligny-Montrachet 2017

Golden yellow color with green reflections. Mineral aromas (flint), floral (hawthorn) and milk (butter, warm croissant) that blend elegant with notes of honey and hazelnuts. On the palate, great concentration of aromas. A finish powerful and distinguished.

This Puligny Montrachet is blends elegantly with meat and fish (veal or chicken in white sauce, roasted sea bass, but also foie gras) or grilled shell fish with sauce (shrimp, lobster...). 

Delicious as an aperitif or with mild tasting cheese (camembert, brie, blue, goat, 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.
