As I noted last year, there is only a solitary barrel of Montrachet in the Chartron cellars, which is purchased from a grower in Puligny-Montrachet. The wine is raised in a one wine barrel and is very good in 2011, but it cannot replicate the same vinous magic of the Bâtard-Montrachet and Clos des Chevaliers in the lineup this year. The deep and very fine nose offers up scents of apple, pear, a touch of butter, lovely soil tones, a hint of iodine and a fair bit of vanillin oak (particularly for a one wine barrel). On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with very fine depth, sound focus and very good length and grip on the bright, but not quite racy finish. This is an excellent wine by any measure, but I know which grand crus I would focus on for my own cellar chez Chartron! (Drink between 2018-2040)
