Chartron et Trebuchet Chablis
Maison Chartron et Trebuchet
France - Burgundy - Chablis

Located in northern Burgundy near Auxerre, the Chablis vineyards are alongside a small river aptly named the "Serein" (meaning Serene). 

The Chablis region is a limestone plateau cut by valleys. The Premier Crus lie on a stratum dating from the Kimmeridgian (155 millions years BC), with alternating marl and limestone and tiny deposits of oysters in the rock, reminiscent of the warm and shallow sea which then covered Burgundy. Yields are 60 hl/ha.

Clear pale golden color. The nose is both floral and mineral. The palate reflects the nose with fresh notes of citrus, chalk and green tea. The finish is accurate and crystalline.

Wine Type

Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed on arrival at the winery using pneumatic presses. The fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks thermoregulated at 16 degrees C. Aged on the lees for 9 months. Yield 60 hl/ha.

Perfect with hot oysters or fish in sauce, but also with white meats in sauce (veal, poultry). Sushi pairs perfectly with its minerality. Goat cheese, Blue cheese and comté cheese.

"This ripe Chablis is almost tannic in its dusty peach-skin flavors, with enough ripe apple flavors to balance that leesy character, and mineral acidity to girdle all of its flesh. Decant it for grilled swordfish."

"Prominent notes of smoke and crushed earth suggest some reduction still in this bottling, but a fresh core of white grapefruit and white blossom notes peeks through with time and aeration. Ripe in fruit yet slim and peppery on the palate, this refreshing dry white is at peak now. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

 "Bright notes of green pear are smooth and inviting on this wine's nose. The palate comes in with the same smooth freshness, adding citrus zestiness that frames the juicy, fruity body. It's lemony and utterly appetizing on the finish. - ANNE KREBIEHL MW"
