Jean-René Chartron founded the Maison Chartron et Trébuchet in 1984 with Louis Trébuchet, manager of a wine trading company. The property was purchased in Fall 2016 by Francois Martenot, whose objective is to promote the great white wines of Burgundy while respecting and perpetuating the quality work achieved by Jean Chartron and Louis Trébuchet.
The Maison Chartron et Trébuchet specializes in producing great white Burgundy wines. It begins with a radical selection of the very best plots: the highest-quality terroirs of the Côte are chosen, and the grapes are carefully monitored throughout the ripening period. All harvesting is done by hand. All of the winemaking is done in cask. A proportion of 20% - 40% new barrels is used, depending on the appellations and the vintage. Wines are left to age for 12-18 months. The racking of the wines is done in the traditional manner, eliminating any unnecessary filtering. The wines are then bottled without being exposed to ambient air to preserve all their flavor and quality. They are then aged for four to six months before being released to the market.
