About The Winery:
Jean-René Chartron founded the Maison Chartron et Trébuchet in 1984 with Louis Trébuchet, manager of a wine trading company. The property was purchased in Fall 2016 by Francois Martenot, whose objective is to promote the great white wines of Burgundy while respecting and perpetuating the quality work achieved by Jean Chartron and Louis Trébuchet.
The Maison Chartron et Trébuchet specializes in producing great white Burgundy wines. It 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. All harvesting is done by hand. All of the winemaking is done in cask. A proportion of 20% - 40% new barrels is used, depending on the appellations and the vintage. Wines are left to age for 12-18 months. The racking of the wines is done in the traditional manner, eliminating any unnecessary filtering. The wines are then bottled without being exposed to ambient air to preserve all their flavor and quality. They are then aged for four to six months before being released to the market.
Bright yellow color with green hues. A complex and expressive nose of white flowers, underlined by some lime notes. The palate is ample, well-balanced with aromatic notes of citrus fruits and honeysuckle. A mineral and long finish.
Appellation: Montagny 1er Cru

Ratings & ReviewsAllen Meadows' Burghound:
"An attractively airy nose is comprised by the citrusy essence of various white-fleshed fruit, most notably pear. There is a beguiling texture to the plump and round but vibrant medium weight flavors that exude a refreshing salinity on the bright and crisp finale. Bouchots isn't a lieu-dit that is seen very often, and this is a quality example that could be enjoyed now or held for a few years as well." (Oct 2020)
