96+ Point 2010 Batard-Montrachet from Jean Chartron. More Great 2010 White Burgundies

Chartron 2010 Batard Header
"The 2010s from Jean-Michel Chartron may well be the finest wines he has ever produced in his career - at least up until this point - and there are some absolute gems to be found here in the cellars this year! I had been extremely remiss in not visiting him each and every year since I started the newsletter, but I can learn from the errors of my ways, and 

Domaine Jean Chartron is now on my regular tasting schedule, as these are some of the very finest wines as can be found in the illustrious village of Puligny-Montrachet, and the vinous fireworks here extend down to the more "user-friendly" appellations from the exalted peaks of the top premier and grand cru Pulignys. A simply superb range of 2010s!"  John Gilman, A View from the Cellar June 2012

 

 

 

Established in 1859 by the cooper-craftsman Jean-Edouard Dupard, Domaine Jean Chartron has been managed by five generations concerned with both the expansion and prosperity of the prestigious vineyards and the management of the rural district.


Over the decades the Domaine has built up a prestigious array of the very best Cote de Beaune vineyards centred around Puligny-Montrachet. Included are a number of Monopoles including the Chevalier-Montrachet Clos du Chevaliers.

 

I tasted at the domaine late last year and was really blown away with the quality of the 2010's. The wines universally showed great power and extract with a magnificent acid spine. They are classic, powerful wines and very serious in style.

I again tasted quite a few of the wines at the Grands Jours de Bourgogne in March 2012. They had been bottled recently and the quality only confirmed my prior thoughts. They were my best 2010 whites of the entire week!

 

I am delighted to see that John Gilman has reviewed the wines in the latest edition of A View from Cellar. John's reviews always make good reading as he is not afraid to make hard calls. Not that he has had to with the 2010 Jean Chartron wines - they have received exceptional reviews across the board.

 

One wine that received a stupendous review was the 2010 Batard-Montrachet. We have 15 bottles left.

 

2010 Batard-Montrachet

Normal Price $350.00

Pre Arrival Price $299.00

Chartron Batard Label John Gilman: Domaine Chartron's Bâtard-Montrachet hails from Domaine Ramonet's parcel, as the two domaines effect a swap of grapes each year at harvest time, with Noël Ramonet getting his Chevalier-Montrachet from Jean-Michel Chartron in exchange for Bâtard-Montrachet grapes. I believe the ratio is three parts of Bâtard for two parts Chevalier. The 2010 Chartron Bâtard-Montrachet is simply stunning, as it delivers a young, pure and classic nose of apple, tangerine, brilliantly complex soil tones, orange peel and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full bodied and magically transparent, with a rock solid core of fruit, a very youthful personality, racy acids and a stunningly long and pure finish of uncompromising precision and balance. This is a Lamborghini of Bâtard-Montrachet. 2020-2050+. 96+ Points!

  

We have a lovely range of wines available starting at the Bourgogne Chardonnay Clos de la Combe (Gilman 88 Points and just $27.20 Pre Arrival) up to the Chevalier-Montrachet Clos des Chevaliers Monopole and Le Montrachet Grand Crus! You can view all the wines on our website by clicking here. The wines are every bit as good as Gilman's reviews and are strikingly similar to the scores he has given to Domaine Leflaive!
