Chartron 2018 PA Gilman header
White Burgundy at its finest!
Those of you who are keen followers will have witnessed the rise of Domaine Chartron to the very top echelon. 

The domaine's range of wines is unbeatable with around 20 different whites from Bourgogne to Montrachet. Chartron also produces a unique Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Rouge from the Clos du Cailleret vineyard. Only one barrel is made each year!

John Gilman, View from the Cellars says "Jean-Michel Chartron has made another very strong set of wines in 2018. He was not
one of the very earliest harvesters in the Côte de Beaune in this year, as Dominique Lafon and several other vignerons were out in the vines around the 25th of August, but Jean-Michel and his
team were not far behind them, as harvest got rolling here with alacrity in August 30th in 2018.

The resulting wines have turned out beautifully- and again, the early similarities to the 1992 vintage of white Burgundy was quite striking as I worked through the line at Domaine Chartron
this year! The wines are generally all between thirteen and 13.5 percent alcohol this year, with the superb Corton-Charlemagne perhaps the highest in the cellars at 13.7 percent in 2018. They
are deep, soil-driven wines with great depth of pure fruit and good acid structures, which will drink very well in a fairly short period of time for most cuvées, but have the balance to age long
and gracefully as well. As is customary chez Chartron in November, the first few wines had already been bottled just before the harvest of 2019, everything else up to the level of premier cru had been assembled in tank at the same time and most had been fined in mid-September, while the grand crus would spend a second winter in cask prior to racking and preparation for

Today we are pleased to offer the 2018's Pre Arrival with Gilman's fantastic tasting notes. We receive a good allocation from the domaine but already many wines are close to selling out.

Pre Arrival Price $57.50

Chartron Rully label
John Gilman "View from the Cellar":I have always been impressed with the consistent quality of Jean-Michel's Rully Blancand the 2018 is another very successful bottle. The bouquet is bright and very classy, wafting from the glass in a blend of apple, pear, stony limestone, spring flowers and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and focused, with a fine core of fruit, zesty acids and lovely backend lift on the long and complex finish. This is a really good bottle of Rully that will drink well right from the outset, but have no trouble keeping in the cellar. Great value! 2020-2035. 90 Points

Chartron Dent NV label
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": Jean-Michel did not have the exact analysis yet on the Dents de Chien in 2018, but guesses it will be somewhere between 13.2 and 13.4 percent. The wine is very pure and promising, offering up a fine combination of apple, pear, pastry cream, a beautiful base of limestone soil, a touch of fresh almond and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full-bodied, with a lovely core of ripe fruit, racy acids and fine cut and grip on the focused and quite classic finish. 2022-2040.
91 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": A mineral width to the aroma, a little vibration contained within. Wide, layers of flavour, more precise than the Puligny today, more driving and mineral finishing too. The roundness of the vintage but ooh so good... Excellent wine.
Puligny-Montrachet 2018
Landed Price $173.95
Pre Arrival Price $147.95
50 bottles left
Chartron Puligny Villages Label
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": The 2018 Puligny AC from Jean-Michel Chartron is an excellent example in the making. The nose delivers a fine and youthful combination of white peach, apple, limestone soil tones, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is young, deep and nicely structured, with a good core, full-bodied format and excellent soil signature on the long, zesty and focused finish. This could use a year or two to blossom, but it will also be quite tasty right out of the blocks. 2021-2045.

Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatieres 2018
Landed Price $224.95
Pre Arrival Price $190.95
7 bottles left
chartron folatieres label
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": The 2018 Folatières from Domaine Chartron is very promising and was showing a nice sense of reserve out of the blocks that augurs very well for its future development. The bouquet is a classic and very precise blend of delicious apples, pears, pastry cream, complex, chalky soiltones, vanillin oak and a topnote of apple blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a good core of fruit, bright acids, fine focus and grip and a long, poised and vibrant finish. This is very 1992-like in profile and depth of fruit. It will be accessible right out of the blocks, but I would opt to give it at least a few years in the cellar to let those secondary layers emerge. It is a very svelte example of Folatières. 2023-2060. 92+ Points

Steen Ohman  The Puligny Les Folatieres 2018 is showing fine form - effortless and quite refined. The fruit is rich, sumptuous and generous, with some exotic notes. A fine expression of Puligny, and Folatieres is a delightful vineyard even in the more generous years. 91-92 Points
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle Monopole 2018
Landed Price $256.50
Pre Arrival Price $217.95
24 bottles left

Chartron Pucelles Label NV
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": The Clos de la Pucelle is located on the northern end of the vineyard, next door to the large parcel owned by Domaine Leflaive, and the 2018 version is outstanding. The bouquet is pure and classic, delivering a fine aromatic constellation of apple, pear, chalky soil tones, crème patissière, lemon blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, crisp and shows off lovely mid-palate depth, with good acidity and mineral drive, fine focus and grip and a very long, nascently complex and energetic finish. This is first class juice. 2024-2060+. 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...

Steen Ohman 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

Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2018
Landed Price $483.50
Pre Arrival Price $410.00
8 bottles left

Chartron Corton Label
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": Jean-Michel Chartron's fruit for his Corton-Charlemagne hails from the lieu à dit of En Charlemagne in the heart of the vineyard. His 2018 version is outstanding, offering up a superb bouquet of apple, pear, orange zest, a great base of chalky minerality, white flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and again, rock solid at the core, with great cut and grip, and superb focus and length on the ripe and racy finish. Very, very impressive! 2025-2065. 94+ Points

Steen Ohman The Corton-Charlie is a tremendous wine - showing the best side of the 2018 vintage. From the Pernand-Vergelesses side of the Corton hill, with its relatively cooler climate, this gives a vivid and refined Corton - airy, with lovely, effortless fruit and precise minerality. This is clearly a wine to seek out.
 94-95 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report"Wide, an almost granular complexity - an almond croissant. Punchier as always after the Pulignys; mineral, saline, great length again. Last drops show a hint of pepper. Excellent as a minimum - so much potential here.

Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2018
Landed Price $821.50
Pre Arrival Price $698.50
9 bottles left

Chartron Batard Label
John Gilman "View from the Cellar": The 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet from Domaine Jean Chartron is also outstanding on both the nose and palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a mix of apple, pear, crème patissière, chalky minerality, apple blossoms and a deft framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and shows off outstanding mid-palate depth, with lovely structure and lift, bright acids and excellent length and nascent complexity on the very refined finish. This is great Bâtard in the making! 2027-2065+. 95+ Points

Steen Ohman The Batard-Montrachet is from the middle-lower part of the vineyard - just on the border between Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet, but (as with the estate) located in Puligny. The nose is quite airy, but it is nevertheless a big wine with exotic notes of white peach and almonds. This is a rich wine. 
93-94 Points

Domaine Jean Chartron Chevalier-Montrachet Clos des Chevaliers Monopole Grand Cru 2018
Landed Price $1195.00
Pre Arrival Price $1015.00
11 bottles left
Chartron Chevalier label hi John Gilman "View from the Cellar": The 2018 Clos des Chevaliers is probably once again the finest wine in the Chartron cellars this year, but the race is neck and neck between it and the outstanding Bâtard! The bouquet is young and shows great potential in its combination of pear, apple, pastry cream, gorgeous, chalky soil tones, a touch of fresh almond, vanillin oak and a beautiful floral top note redolent of acacia blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and nicely ripe on the attack, with great purity and mineral drive, a superb core, bright acids and a long, zesty and laser-like finish. 2027-2065+. 95+ Points

Steen Ohman The Chevalier-Montrachet Clos des Chevaliers is located in the northern end of the original Chevalier-Montrachet - between the plot of Domaine d'Auvenay and the Demoiselles section belonging to Louis Jadot and Louis Latour. This clos is 0.42 ha and the oldest vines are from 1947-48. This is, even in the 2018 vintage, the top dog in the Chartron lineup. It's rich, balanced and detailed, with the old vines providing a special silky, effortless feel. It's intense with fine depth. A charming effort, although not quite rivalling the 2017. 94-95 Points

Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": Ooh, now that's such a great a nose, so deep, so beautifully attractive. Ooh - volume, some base of oak but so balanced, simply bravo!
