Morgan Truchetet Bourgogne Chardonnay 2020


It is lively, rich and fresh for the vintage, showing a zippy salty mineral energy. Even in this generous year it has the structure and balance to be a gorgeous classic Bourg Blanc!!

A 100% Chardonnay cuvée from grapes purchased at Domaine Gerbeaut, on the Meursault plain. Sustainable farming. The grapes are harvested by hand. Vinification: direct pressing then transfer by gravity into barrels (25% new oak) for alcoholic and malolactic fermentation and maturation on the lees for one year without racking or stirring.

More Information

Domaine Truchetet, a very special very small Domaine in the heart of Nuits Saint Georges, it has been family owned and run for 6 generations.  Jean-Pierre Truchetet has been handing the baton over to children Morgan and Julie for some time and in 2018 he took full retirement, leaving the next generation in charge.

Soil comes first and they are now “officially” moving towards organic farming. They continue to explore new practices, such as innovative plant and seaweed treatments. Their objective: to give energy back to their soil while bottling the fullest expression of each terroir. In the attempt to avoid too much oak influence in their wines, the Truchetets use an unusual barrel called a Harlequin which combines alternative staves of oak and acacia and does indeed have a harlequin look about it. The acacia allows oxygen ingress without adding brute wood notes, effectively halving the oak influence on the wine. To further mitigate the new wood effect, they undergo a very light toasting for a maximum of two hours.

Domaine Truchetet  produce small quantities of pure, delicious and thoughtful wine.
