Situated in the heart of the Bourgogne Golden Triangle (Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault), Chartron et Trébuchet is now recognised for the very high quality of its white wines, which include five Grand Crus, and is held in high regard by connoisseurs as the creator of the greatest Puligny-Montrachets, symbolic of the company.
South of the Côte de Beaune, the vineyards surround the village of Chassagne-Montrachet. Along with Puligny-Montrachet it shares the undisputed prince of all dry white wines: Grand Cru Montrachet (pronounced Mon-rachet).
The vineyards lie on an excellent limestone and stony soil.
Traditional vinification: The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery in pneumatic presses. Settling, cold storing for 48h. Fermentation in
barrels at low temperature, 16/20° to preserve aromas. Ageing continues in barrels on total lies between 8 to 16 months with regular stirring to gain depth and complexity. 30% of new barrels.
Nice bright pale yellow in colour.
Intense nose of yellow fruits and acacia flower.
Expressive and round palate with citrus fruits notes lightly mentholated. Complex and long finish elegantly oaked.
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...).
