Cellar for up to 5 years. Serve chilled.

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.

This Pouilly-Fuisse is a great example of their typical house style, offering impressive quality at a modest price point. Once in the winery the Chardonnay fruit is fermented and aged in oak casks, with 20-40% new oak barrels used depending on the vintage.

Apricot, green apple, and hints of toasted oak burst out of the glass, while the first sip reveals a rich and creamy texture, well-rounded full body, and a generous orchard fruit core. The finish is long and polished with hints of toasted nuts, woodsmoke, and vanilla from the oak ageing. A great partner for grilled salmon steaks or smoked salmon, herby roast chicken, and even tricky to pair dishes involving asparagus and artichokes.
