2014 En Primeur – Jean Chartron

2014 En Primeur – Jean Chartron

The vintage

The spring in 2014 in Burgundy was mild, allowing for an excellent flowering on the vines across the region. The summer was particularly rainy, but like much of France, conditions became favourable again around mid-August. September was ideal, with beautiful, sunny weather that allowed the grapes to flourish and achieve optimal ripeness. Chardonnay from this vintage tends to display highly fruity flavours, while maintaining good balance. The Pinot Noir is bold, with good aromatic intensity.

Domaine Jean Chartron

Established in 1859, by cooper Jean-Edouard Dupard, Domaine Jean Chartron has a significant history in the region of Burgundy. The estate owns thirteen hectares throughout the region (the majority of which are Grand and Premier Crus), with heart of the domaine based in Puligny-Montrachet. The average age for the vines of the estate is 40 years, and all the harvests are done by hand. Herbicides and chemical pesticides are never used in the vineyards, and everything is operated organically.
