Domaine Jean Chartron has a magnificent range of wines from Puligny-Montrachet and nearby. 
 
In addition to the Grand Crus there is a range of Premier Crus of which two always stand out as extremely special wines. Both are Clos (a walled vineyard) and both are Monopoles (a single owner).
 
The wines are Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle and 1er Cru Clos du Cailleret.
 
The vineyards themselves are well situated. Between them they adjoin all of the Grand Cru vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet. Not surprisingly the wines have more than their fair share of Grand Cru style. They are both complex, mineral, stylish and long. I rate them above the 1er Crus of another famous maker who costs around twice the price.

The 2018's are the 101st vintage from these vineyards!
 
We offer all Domaine Jean Chartron wines at a 25% En Primeur prices until the end of this week. Get you order in today and save an extra 10%!

These wines typically sell out before they arrive in Australia.
  
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle Monopole 2018
Landed Price $256.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $195.95

Chartron Pucelles Label NV Steen Ohman Winehog.org: 
The Clos de la Pucelle is located in the northern end of Pucelles - the vineyard is around 1 ha, with the oldest part planted in 1953-54. This is a very elegant cuvée, with tremendous mid-palate fruit, lovely purity and a delightful floral element. It is a refined and classic Pucelle - intense and filigreed - although not quite matching Les Caillerets. 92-93 Points

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": The 101st vintage for this wine at the domaine. Hmm - wow - that has a minerality - what a super nose! The palate is likewise shaded to the mineral, today oaked, yet with clearly great potential...
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos du Caillerets Monopole 2018
Landed Price $256.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $195.95

Chartron Caillerets Label NV Steen Ohman Winehog.org: 
The Clos du Caillerets is one of the signature wines of the domaine. Chartron was previously by far the largest owner of Caillerets, with 3.33 ha in total. Inheritance tax forced Chartron to sell some of the vines, and they now hold a bit more than 1 ha (1.0354 ha) at the northern end of the vineyard in the Clos du Caillerets - surrounded by very tall stone walls. The oldest vines in the Clos du Caillerets are from 1955-56. This a delightful wine - the strong minerality really supports the intense, generous fruit. It's deep and mineral with classical notes of anise and fennel, and has an exotic, creamy generosity on the mid-palate. This a serious wine in this generous year. 93-94 Points

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": Also the 101st vintage for this wine chez Chartron. This, together with the Clos Chevalier and Clos de Pucelles were bought from a Madame Billerey - her domaine had an amazing collection of vineyards. Jean-Michel's grandfather had half a hectare of pinot in here. A more compact nose than the Clos de la Pucelle but finer, more floral, more perfumed. More open on the palate, so many layers, mineral, saline, slightly sweet, beautifully balanced. If the last shows the potential to be great, this is already great - bravo!

Guyot Dinner Davids Header
 
Domaine Olivier Guyot 2016 Dinner
Thursday 3 October 2019 at David's
We love to present interesting producers of Burgundy who we have discovered whilst visiting the world's greatest wine region. Sometimes these domaines have a high profile but often they do not. To be honest it is the makers that fall into the second category that give me the most pleasure. Many of you will have tasted the wines of Gilbert and Christine Felettig, Philippe Cheron, Chevillon-Chezeaux, Domaine des Varoilles, Pierrick Bouley, Coste-Caumartin, Jomain, Duroche and Bernard Millot - all once seldom reviewed by the US critics but now on the radar and often lauded as new Burgundian superstars.
 
Domaine Olivier Guyot is another of these less well known producers who makes exceptional wines.
 
The Guyots are one of the oldest families in Marsannay-la-Côte. Louis Guyot was a small farmer/wine-grower with many animals, particularly carthorses which he used to help in the vineyards and at harvest time. In 1951, his son Albert took over the family farm. Most of the vineyards and fields were located at Marsannay-la-Côte and his wine was mainly sold on to merchants.
 
In 1962, Albert married Odile Guyard, the eldest daughter of a large family. Odile's father, Georges Guyard was a small landowner and nurseryman. He decided to rent vineyards and then bought some to enlarge his own estate bit by bit. To save his horses the journey between the two villages (7 km), he swapped his Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru (Lavaux St-Jacques) for land at Marsannay-la-Côte!
 
Since 1990, Olivier Guyot has been in sole charge of the estate which now stretches from Marsannay-la-Côte to Chambolle-Musigny. Today the estate comprises a vast number of small plots covering 15 hectares. Vines are grown using bio dynamic cultivation methods and are still ploughed the traditional way, with a carthorse. Vine age is significant ensuring wines of concentration and complexity.
 
Guyot receives great press from the French critics but is not visited by any of the major English-speaking reviewers.
 
I do not have tasting notes for all of his 2016's so I thought a small dinner presenting his wines would be great. We will look at 9 different wines including his Clos St-Denis and Clos de la Roche Grand Crus. Due to the frost in 2016 there was just a single barrel (288 bottles) of each produced.
 
The dinner will be at David's in Prahran on Thursday 3 October. 7.30pm start. The cost of the wine portion is $135.00 per person. As we have done in the past we will order the Celebration Banquet ($65.00 per Person) and share the food and corkage ($10.00 per bottle) bill on the evening. It will be a smaller group than usual and I only have 8 seats available.
