I admire Chartron's style of winemaking. His wines are nervy and minimalist in their youth, quintessential Puligny-Montrachet with malic notes at their core, despite 2019's warmth. At the lower end I was smitten by the pretty Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc. Chartron's wines remain reasonably priced in the scheme of things and are well worth seeking out. Vinous.com

The 2019 Pernand-Vergelesses Blanc comes from the lieu-dit of Les Belles Filles. It has a crisp, quite energetic bouquet with vibrant red apple and fresh lime aromas. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, the oak nearly integrated with a compact but persistent finish. This is a pretty Pernand and it comes recommended. Vinous.com
Domaine Jean Chartron dates from 1859 and is now run by the 5th generation of the family, Jean-Michel looks after the winery whilst his sister Anne-Laure manages the vineyards. With 13 hectares, including Grand Cru's and 1er Cru Monopole vineyards, they are an important vineyard proprietor in Puligny and have long been one of the high profile Domaines of the village. Jean-Michel and Anne-Laure are producing outstanding wines.
