More Information
Producer Domaine Jean Chartron: The appellation of Puligny-Montrachet in the Cote de Beaune of Burgundy has long held a stellar reputation for its production of high-quality Grand Cru and Premier Cru white wines. It is considered by many Burgundy fans as the finest possible expression of Chardonnay. In this land of unequaled terroir and rich history, resides Domaine Jean Chartron, a Burgundy house that has long cultivated the prime real-estate. The family has been closely linked to that of Burgundy and more specifically to that of Puligny-Montrachet.

Founded in 1859 by the journeyman cooper (one who builds wooden casks or barrels) Jean-Edouard Dupard, Domaine Jean Chartron has witnessed five generations succeed one another, all of whom have been very involved in the development and prosperity of the Domaine as well as the commune of Puligny-Montrachet and the Burgundy vineyards. In fact, prior to 1873, the appellation was simply named Puligny, but while he was the mayor, Jean-Edouard Dupard, had the municipal council pass a resolution authorizing the commune to add the name of its most prestigious wine, Montrachet to that of Puligny. Dupard’s daughter, Eugenie Dupard, married Jean-Edmund Chartron. It was she who brought the vines as a dowry for her marriage. This is how the Dupard and Chartron alliance was formed, and is now engraved in the stones of the doors of the vineyards.

Today, fifth generation Jean-Michel and Anne-Laure oversee their 14.5 hectare estate and continue their family’s tradition of fine winemaking in Puligny Montrachet and neighboring communes. Jean-Michel vinifies the wines of the domaine, which express their terroir admirably through a diverse range of aromas and flavors. As for his sister Anne-Laure, with the help of her team, looks after the family ‘gardens’ with the greatest respect for the environment and the land. Together, they have the privilege of exploiting some of the most prestigious parcels in burgundy, including Village, Appellation, Premier Crus and Grand Crus located among the best of the Cote de Beaune and the Cote Chalonnaise.

Domaine Jean Chartron has an impressive portfolio including Grand Cru parcels in Montrachet, Chevalier-Montrachet Clos des Chevalier, Batard-Montrachet, Corton Charlemagne and their monopole, Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Pucelle. Amidst these great white terroirs, the domaine also produces a few red wines including the exceptional Puligny Montrachet Premier Cru Clos Du Cailleret. This unique bottling is Pinot Noir that is harvested from the property’s clay and limestone soils.

Whether in the vineyard or in the cellar, everything at Domaine Jean Chartron is completed with the utmost respect for tradition and the environment. The domaine ensures the respect of the vines thanks to a meticulous work and the soil management program that occurs during the pruning process as well as precise green work until the harvest. The vines have an average age of 40 years, with some choice parcels dating back to before World War II. An extremely careful plantation management policy guarantees, in addition to quality of the wines, a regularity of the volumes produced.

The Chartrons have dedicated their lives to uphold the legacy of the family estate and are committed to not only producing some of the greatest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines, but also in compliance with tradition and respect for nature. “Our complicity stems from the fraternal bond that unites us, which allows us to reveal the singularity of our great wines.” – Jean-Michel and Anne-Laure
