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.
Santenay is in the south of the Côte de Beaune on the last big hill before Montrachet. 100% Pinot Noir with 12 months of ageing in French oak, 20% of which is new barrels. Frequent pigeage and remontage (techniques to bring the must back into contact with the remains of the grapes) give this Pinot Noir an intense red colour.
This intense, structured wine has finely defined raspberry and cherry fruit, touches of vanilla and earth, and a characterful mineral note. The acidity keeps it fresh and lively, making it a great food wine.
Recommended with stews, (lacquered) poultry, but equally good with a home-made burger and mild cheeses.
