- Chartron Et Trebuchet Puligny-Montrachet 2013 Product #31481 (In Stock)
Chartron et Trebuchet is part of what has grown to be the 4th largest producer in Burgundy. Unlike other large firms, which purchase most fruit or wine, Vincent Sauvestre actually owns his vines and farms them well. Harvest is always done entirely by hand and, after a careful sorting, wines are fermented and aged entirely in barrel (all previously used casks here). After receiving plenty of critical praise in the early 2000s, this domaine has largely flown under the radar. Wine Enthusiast’s 92 point rating of the 2013 edition of this wine is likely to change that and drive a bit of a price increase, too.
Meanwhile, enjoy this lovely Puligny that has opened nicely since the review was written and is, in fact, delicious in 2017!
"This wine is closed and firm in character, but has considerable potential. It has the makings of a mineral and spice-flavored wine that is textured while showing ripe yellow fruits and a citrus backdrop. It needs to wait; drink from 2017."Wine Enthusiast 92 points
- Chartron Et Trebuchet Puligny-Montrachet Les Chalumeaux 2014 Product #31305 (In Stock)
Located on the north side of Puligny-Montrachet near the Meursault border, this outstanding 1er Cru Chardonnay shows Puligny drive and vibrancy with a touch of Meursault minerality and richness. 18 months in 50% new French Oak rounds the wine into shape but keeps the oak deftly in the background. Rich, ripe, pear and stone fruit get lift from citrusy acids and loads of complexity from notes of fresh butter, salty caramel, smoke and dusty mineral. Young and full of potential, it's delicious now with lobster, sea bass, or roasted poultry.
