Our Appellations

The sole activity of Puligny-Montrachet, a village of 470 inhabitants, is based on the great vineyards.

Built on the lowest part of the slope, at the bottom of that "mountain" reaching its highest point at 353 metres (about 1,160 feet), Puligny-Montrachet benefits from a microclimate sheltered from the north wind. The soil is rich in clay, siliceous sand and lime.

230 hectares (575 acres) of vineyards produce, besides the straight village-Appellation Puligny, 13 Premiers Crus and 5 Grands Crus. The big majority of the production is white (93%).

Domaine Jean Chartron owns 14 hectares of vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet and the neighbour villages, the major part of which being Premiers and Grands Crus.

Specialized in white wines, Domaine Chartron expands its offer by purchasing grapes of Montrachet’s parcel, Meursault “Les Pierres”, Santenay “Champ Perrier”, and Pernand-Vergelesses “Les Belles Filles”. The vinification of this grapes will be realized with the same philosophy than the Domaine’s grapes.

Clos de la Pucelle, Clos du Cailleret and les Folatières are located halfway up the hill and benefit from an excellent period of sunshine.

Chevalier-Montrachet, located on the upper slope of the hill, benefits from the best microclimatic conditions.

Three exceptional named-places of the Montrachet hill bear a name that directly comes from the Middle Ages. One says that the Landlord of Puligny, "the Montrachet", divided his land and donated it to his children; the eldest son, the Knight (le Chevalier), the daughter, the Maid (la Pucelle), and the illegitimate child (le Bâtard).

Others are saying that "the Montrachet" has had another illegitimate child who, when a baby, was crying and making a lot of noise; this could explain the name "Criots-Bâtard" given to a parcel of Grand Cru. Regarding the Clos du Cailleret, its name comes from its soil rich in limestone and various calcareous stones pebbles and shingles.

The average age of all these vines is 40 years. Such a replanting policy enables, besides the quality of the wines, a regular yield.

Harvest is made by hand at Domaine Jean Chartron. Neither herbicides, nor chemical pesticides are used in the vineyards. Vineyards are conducted organically.
