Located in the heart of the Burgundian Golden Triangle (Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault), Chartron et Trébuchet is today recognised for the very high quality of its white wines, including 5 Grands Crus, and is remembered by connoisseurs as the creator of the greatest Puligny-Montrachet wines, symbols of the House.
The Chablis Grand Cru appellation is located in the commune of Chablis, in the Yonne department. The “Bougros” climate is located to the north-west, at an altitude of between 100 and 250 metres. Soil of limestone and marl with Exogyra virgula, tiny fossil oysters. Upper Jurassic soils formed 150 million years ago. Traditional vinification: Direct pressing on receipt of the grapes in a pneumatic press, settling, cold storage for 48 hours. Fermentation in vats and barrels, at a low temperature of 16/20°C to preserve the aromas. Aged on the lees in barrels and vats for 8 to 16 months with regular stirring of the lees. 70 to 80% new barrels.
A beautiful pure gold-green colour that develops into a light yellow with age. It is brilliant and limpid. The sumptuous, fine nose reveals mineral aromas and floral notes of lime blossom, dried fruit, honey and almonds. The palate is dense, round, opulent and deep, with excellent balance.Recommended serving temperature: 12 – 14°C
The liveliness of this wine makes it a perfect match for foie gras, shellfish (lobster, crayfish), poultry in cream sauce and white meats.
