Some vineyards have all the luck!
St-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien lies above the Grand Crus Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet. It is a great site being well exposed to the sun, whilst the high elevation means cooler breezes which help retain minerality.
It is a favourite of many of our clients who love classic white Burgundy and appreciate value for money.
The 2012 Jean Chartron bottling is in stock. It is another super vintage for this vineyard.
If you have not tried this vineyard you really should consider it. To tempt you we have priced the wine at the original Pre Arrival Price. But only for 7 days, so please act quickly.
Domaine Jean Chartron St-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien 2012
Yields were only twenty-five hectoliters per hectare for the Chartron family's parcel in Murgers des Dents de Chien in 2012.This too is a pretty concentrated example of the vintage, but also impeccably balanced and very pure. The bouquet is an excellent blend of apple, pear, tangerine, pastry cream, terres blanches and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied and absolutely rock solid at the core, with lovely focus and cut, snappy acids and excellent length and grip on the very well-balanced and powerful finish. I really like the intensity of wines like this in 2012, as most often, when one encounters white Burgundies with this type of concentration, this comes at the expense of freshness and the wines tend to be overripe in profile. This is emphatically not the case with lovely and powerful wines such as this Murgers des Dents de Chien! 2016-2030+. 91 Points
