As winehog.org says "While there is great interest in the Grand Crus, much can be learned from the lesser wines - including the ability to produce pure and detailed wines from the lower-end appellations."
 
This particularly applies to domaines like Jean Chartron where there is a wealth of Grand Crus but also numerous Villages wines and a super old vines Bourgogne Blanc. All wines are made with great care and attention to detail and at Bourgogne level you can really see just how good Domaine Jean Chartron is.

Jean-Michel Chartron's comments on the 2018 vintage "The fruit was in extraordinarily good health, and the weather was perfect, allowing each winemaker to harvest at the optimum moment. The mood was serene across the whole wine region, producers enjoying this magnificent vintage that combined quality and quantity. Many think this will be one of the best vintages in many years. In 2018, the aromatic complexity of the white wines is incredible. They are explosive on the nose, with an amazing diversity that reflects each terroir. The wines have a certain crispness and good minerality. In the mouth, they are rounded and generous, balanced with a nice tension."

John Gilman "View from the Cellar": The 2018 Bourgogne blanc from Jean-Michel Chartron had bounced back nicely from its bottling at the end of August and was showing quite nicely in November. All of the vines for this wine are in Puligny-Montrachet. The bouquet offers up a lovely blend of pear, lemon, chalky soil tones, a touch of beeswax and a very discreet base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, long and bouncy, with good grip and length on the still nicely reserved finish. A good example. 2020-2030+.

Wine Advocate - William Kelley: The 2018 Bourgogne Chardonnay Vieilles Vignes offers up a generous bouquet of buttered orchard fruit and wheat toast, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and generous palate. Open and charming but nicely balanced, this will drink well young. Drink 2020-2024. 87 Points
