Domaine Truchetet is new to Hong Kong, 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. Very limited quantities available!
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!
This mixed case contains the following:
2 bottles – Bourgogne Chardonnay 2019
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. Bottled in August 2020.” Morgan Truchetet
2 bottles – Bourgogne Les Chaillots Rouge 2019
This cuvée is from 60 year old vines, hence offering more depth than you would expect at this level. Lovely, silky feel to the fruit: rich and generous. This is delightful drinking, rich yes..yet still elegant.
“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
Only 2,000 bottles produced on very old vines from « Les Charbonnières » planted in 1924 and « Les Topons » planted in1953!
A 100% Pinot Noir cuvée from old vines farmed organically and planted around the estate in 1928 on a plot of 44 ares, in the commune of Premeaux Prissey. The vines grow very high in this parcel, with the trellising raised to reach 1.8 meters. The vineyard is horse ploughed and has 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, 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 2020. Morgan Truchetet
Les Bousselots lies in the commune’s northern sector, in the direction of Vosne-Romanée; the resulting wine therefore hints at the aromatic delicacy typical of Vosne—almost exotic in its spiced bouquet, overlaid with opulent fruit of velvety refinement. This perfumed gem is already open and giving, showing the suave, fragrant qualities that drive Burgundy lovers (me) mad.
“We buy the grapes on the vine, decide on the harvest date and harvest the plot ourselves. Manual harvest with a first sorting in the vineyard and a second sorting on a vibrating table. 100% de-stemmed. After few days of Cold pre-fermentation, the alcoholic fermentation is done traditionally. We use natural yeasts. No « pigeage », just some pumping over. Then, we do the deviating and pressing. The malolactic fermentation is done in barrels. The ageing is done in barrels (25% of new oak) during 12 months then racked and blended in stainless steel tanks before bottling. We use our own equipment. All is done by gravity .” Morgan Truchetet
