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.
Chartron et Trebuchet
Maison Chartron et Trebuchet operates as a negociant or wine merchant that buys in the very best quality grapes from top sites which they then vinify themselves. Thanks to this approach, they are able to source excellent fruit which they use to make excellent value white wines from many of Burgundy’s finest terroirs. They only work with vineyards in Côte d'Or and the Maconnais, monitoring the fruit during the ripening season to ensure only perfect fruit makes it into their wines. They also insist that all of the harvesting is also done by hand.
