St Aubin 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2019
Landed Price $154.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $115.95
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Saint-Aubin Les Perrières 1er Cru has an intense bouquet with fresh lime, green apples and just a touch of lychee in the background. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, a fine saline undercurrent that lends the finish tension and prolongs the aftertaste. This should drink well for the next decade. 90-92 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
A little more compact aroma again – fresh, lemon-citrus too. More gas – less direct than the PV, butopen and with melting flavor. If that adds just a little more focus it will be absolutely excellent – thefinish already is!
St Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents
de Chien 2019
Landed Price $154.50
Special Pre Arrival Price $115.95
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Saint-Aubin Les Murgers des Dents de Chien 1er Cru has more delineation and mineralité compared to the Les Perrières, more terroir expression in situ. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, tropical tones such as passion fruit and mango, counterbalanced by a spicy/ginger tinged finish. It does not quite kick on as I might have hoped, yet there is still a lot of potential here. Expect this to land at the top of my banded score. 90-92 Points

This is fresh, vivid, and stony, with lovely intensity and presence. It has vivid mid-palate energy and intensity, yet with the generosity of the vintage, there is also quite an exotic, exuberant character. 90-91 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
Also compact, but this nose is showing more stony depth than the Perrières. Fuller, more energy,better focus to the flavor too today – a little agrume-citrus here. Juicily finishing – already excellent!
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Folatieres 2019
Landed Price $271.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $203.95
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Les Folatières 1er Cru has a very perfumed bouquet with scents of lime, lemon, thyme and mirabelle, touches of crushed rock bursting from the glass. The palate is rounded and generous on the entry with subtle tropical notes, tapering slightly towards the more classically-driven, mineral finish with satisfying salinity. Good, but out-classed by the Clos du Cailleret and Clos de La Pucelle at the moment.
90-92 Points
Steen Ohman Winehog.org
The Puligny Folatieres is slightly reduced and a bit difficult to taste. It has nevertheless a lush, outgoing Folatieres style, with exuberant Nordic berries giving the wine a hedonistic presence. It has 2019’s generosity and slightly hot note, but in a charming way. Needs a bit of time to fully unfold. 91-92 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
Ooh – here is more – that’s super attractive and super inviting, freshness, clarity. A little more attack and behind is more density. Supple but with a fine fresh intensity. Holding that intensity and line for quite some time in the finish. Excellent again.
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Pucelle Monopole 2019
Landed Price $299.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $224.95
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de La Pucelle 1er Cru has a classy, stony bouquet with traces of yellow plum and orange pith, one of the most detailed from Chartron this year. The palate is taut and linear with a fine bead of acidity, lightly spiced with a gentle grip on the dense finish. Excellent. 91-93 Points
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 refined wine with its 2019 characteristics of cloudberry highlighting the honeysuckle notes of the sexy Pucelles vineyard. There is some reduction, and in general this is a wine to age a bit before indulging. It is on the generous side fruit-wise, and thank goodness! I’m not a purist when it comes to enjoyment. 93-94 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
The 102nd vintage for this wine at the Domaine.
Ooh – yes! Deeper, fuller, hyper attractive – some oak but hardly contributing to this great nose. Big in the mouth, energetic, just a couple of plushness to the texture. Not hyper-energetic but always changing, always fresh. Great wine in preparation here already with a great finish – bravo!
Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos du Cailleret Monopole 2019
Landed Price $299.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $224.95
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet Clos du Cailleret 1er Cru is even better than the preceeding Clos de La Pucelle thanks to its heightened mineralité and killer delineation. The aromatics are in H.D. The palate is powerful and intense, very sappy and saline with a dense and very long lightly spiced finish. There is a sense of completeness to this Puligny that I love, a thrilling wine from Jean-Michel Chartron. 93-95 Points
Steen Ohman Winehog.org
The Clos du Caillerets is one of the signature wines of the estate. Chartron was previously the largest owner of Caillerets, with 3.33 ha in total. Inheritance tax forced the sale of some of the vines, and they now hold a bit more than 1 ha at the northern end of the vineyard in the Clos du Caillerets, surrounded by very tall stone walls. The oldest vines are from 1955-56. This is an intense yet slightly playful wine, despite the rather warmish nature of the terroir. The strong minerality is really shining through, as are classical notes of anise and fennel spiced up with some cloudberries to enhance the exuberant Nordic feel (hmmm … is there such a thing?). Like the domaine’s other top wines, it has an exotic, creamy generosity on the mid-palate. A delight; I do like Caillerets. 93-94 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
Also the 102nd vintage for this wine chez Chartron. This, together with the Clos des Chevaliers and Clos de la Pucelle 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 much stricter nose – deep and fine, stonier, more vertical. Similar in the mouth; not an excess ofenergy, but a growing open clarity of flavor – a completely different style to the previous Clos – in the future I’m not sure which I will prefer but today it’s this!
Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2019
Landed Price $598.00
Special Pre Arrival Price $448.50
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru comes from Charlemagne and the Pernand side of the hill, comprises two barrels from the domaine and three barrels from two other sources. It comes across surprisingly closed on the nose. Maybe just going through a dumb phase of élevage? The palate is medium-bodied and much more expressive, gorgeous yellow plum and pithy/peachy notes with a caressing finish. Once the aromatics awaken, this should be a very seductive "CC". 93-95 Points
Steen Ohman Winehog.org
The Corton-Charlie is a tremendous wine, and really shows the best side of the hot Burgundy vintages. There are options and choices here for Jean-Michel Chartron, who buys in high-quality grapes as well as vinifying those from his own vines on the Corton hill. The homegrown Charlie is a magnificent wine, offering a focused, lively mineral touch with tremendous definition and mineral imprint. It is a big, intense Charlemagne that takes it to the next level. The product of the bought grapes is fine, yet it lacks the focus of the domaine casks. To blend or not to blend? That is the question. 92-95 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
Depth of aroma, a little barrel showing today – but aromatically it’s quite modest. Great mineral style, a structural shape in the mouth – that’s super – so mouth-watering, the barrel just the merest accent. Excellent grand Cru…
Batard-Montrachet Grand Cru 2019
Landed Price $899.95
Special Pre Arrival Price $674.95
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru comprises three barrels from the domaine supplemented by one from another source. It has a strict nose: crushed stone, flint, red apples and then as it opens, a touch of kerosene. The palate is medium-bodied with immense concentration matched with a fine bead of acidity. There is some creamy oak to be subsumed, but I admire the persistence and length on the finish. Great potential.
94-96 Points
Steen Ohman Winehog.org
The Batard-Montrachet is one of Chartron’s prominent sucesses in the 2019 vintage. It is a refined Batard with a sensual, finely expressive character: effortless, one could say, with a silky feel. The nose is airy, but it is nevertheless a substantial wine, with exotic notes of white peach, cloudberries, and almonds. I feel rewarded! While not quite matching the Chevalier, the hedonistic feeling is there. 94-95 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
A waft of open freshness but still a nose that is hiding much. Freshness here too – super width – a different shape to the Charlemagne. Finding all the gaps between your teeth and gums. Still growing in the finish in classic Bâtard fashion. Another wine to be very happy with…
Chevalier-Montrachet Clos des Chevaliers Monopole Grand Cru 2019
Landed Price $1375.00
Special Pre Arrival Price $1031.00
Neal Martin, Vinous Media
The 2019 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru comprises three barrels from the domaine supplemented by one from The 2019 Chevalier-Montrachet Clos de Chevaliers Grand Cru has a very strict and linear nose, crushed stone and dewy Granny Smith apples, touches of flint coming through with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with a silver bead of acidity, hints of blackcurrant leaf with a gentle, lilting finish. One of the prettiest Clos de Chevaliers that I have tasted from Chartron. Delightful. 93-95 Points
Steen Ohman Winehog.org
The Clos des Chevaliers is located at the northern end of the original Chevalier-Montrachet vineyard, between the plots of Domaine d’Auvenay and the Demoiselles section belonging to Louis Jadot and Louis Latour. The Chartron clos is 0.42 ha, and the oldest vines are from 1947-48. This is clearly the top dog in the Chartron line-up. It’s rich, balanced, and has a lively, generously Nordic berry feel to spice up the vintage. The Chevalier carries its generosity fantastically well; the mineral stance and acid backbone are ample, and support a very complete and attractive wine. 95 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report
A more vibrant depth of agrume aroma. Wow – that’s a wine with energy! Gorgeously agrume flavor– energetic flavor – but never too much. Layered and with a subtle richness, but never anything heavy – just a little barrel talking here. Bravo!
