A fine & rare Burgundy 6 Pack
Domaine Truchetet is new to Australia, they are a very special small Burgundian family Domaine based in the heart of Nuits-Saint-Georges. They produce small quantities of pure, delicious and thoughtful wine. 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.
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 passionate and energetic brother & sister team in charge!
We purchased all we could and can offer in total 25 x 6 packs only.

“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. Bottled in August 2020.” Morgan Truchetet

“A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée from old vines farmed organically and planted in the 1950s on the Chaillots parcel in the commune of Nuits-Saint-George. The parcel has deep soil with clay and small pebbles on the surface – called chailles – and natural grassing between the vines. The grapes are harvested by hand, with careful sorting in the vineyard and in the cellar. Vinification: 15 days of cold maceration, followed by gentle pressing, and transfer by gravity into barrels (25% new oak) for 12 months of maturation then an additional five months in vats. Bottled in February 2021.” Morgan Truchetet

Deeply scented with ripe dark plums, sandalwood spice, savoury notes and a hint of wild meatiness, a very enticing introduction.
