Domaine Jean Chartron St Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien 2017 (5243)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Beaune - Saint-Aubin
Chardonnay This is a magnificent terroir .. from the backyard of Montrachet. Minerality is stony and the acidity is fresh. An interesting and edgy terroir – showing the most mineral and vivid side of Saint-Aubin. A lovely match for the vintage. 89-90 Points


Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report: More dimension of aroma here, open structured with pale yellow fruit. A little more density but not at the loss of openness, faintly reductive, complex mid-palate. Long too, less ready than the last, but with extra potential.

Special AUD$103.50 Sorry, sold out

Professional Reviews

Wine Advocate - Neal Martin

The 2017 Saint-Aubin les Murgers des Dents de Chien 1er Cru shows a bit of reduction tasting it directly from vat, although it gradually dissipates to reveal cheeky hints of mint chocolate that combine seamlessly with the malic aromas. The palate is very well balanced with quite a phenolic opening. There is commendable depth here, quite grippy for a white Burgundy with lemongrass lining the finish. Excellent. 2020-2032.


John Gilman "View from the Cellar"

The 2017 Murgers des Dents de Chien from Domaine Chartron is outstanding and was really singing at the time of my November visit. The bouquet delivers lovely purity and complexity in its blend of pear, white peach, crème patissière, a complex base of chalky soil tones, bee pollen, almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and a touch more reserved in personality than the Perrières, with a superb core of fruit, fine soil inflection and a long, zesty and very promising finish. Excellent juice. 2021-2045+.


Darren Harris

A classy bouquet offers up a complex mélange of pear, peach, citrus and chalky soil tones. On the palate the wine is deep and full bodied with more weight than the St-Aubin 1er Cru Perrieres from the same stable. Saline and mineral it finishes with a lashing of acidity and serious length. Another great example from this super vineyard.
