Located just across the border from Puligny-Montrachet lies the St-Aubin Premier Cru vineyard of Murgers des Dents de Chien. The name comes from the piles of stone creates when a vigneron clears the land for planting "Murgers" and "Dent de Chien" - dog's tooth. Working this vineyard, with its sharp stones, is particularly difficult.
The wines from this site have much in common with their more illustrious neighbours across the border. They are mineral and intense with fine acidity and great length - very Puligny-Montrachet in style. It is one of those little gems that Burgundy lovers know and keep to themselves.
Domaine Jean Chartron is one of a small number of producers who own Murgers des Dents de Chien. His parcel is brilliantly located immediately above Chevalier-Montrachet.

John Gilman, A View from the Cellar: The 2013 St. Aubin "Murgers des Dents de Chien" from Domaine Jean Chartron is stunning,
as it delivers a fine nose of pear, lemon, a complex base of chalky minerality, spring flowers, a whisper of the pastry cream to come and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very soil-driven, with an excellent core, crisp acids and a long, complex
and perfectly balanced finish. A superb expression of this outstanding terroir. 2017-2035+. 92 Points

"Jean-Michel Chartron continues to make absolutely superb wines from his family's domaine in the centre of Puligny-Montrachet, and his 2013's are another extremely strong set of wines."
"The entire range in 2013 is outstanding and Domaine Jean Chartron really deserves to be wider recognized for the beautiful wines that they have been consistently producing for many years now - the 2013s are stellar."
