Special Price $71.99 Regular Price $80.00



John Gilman - "The 2020 Murgers des Dents de Chien bottling from Jean-Michel is also outstanding in this vintage. The wine delivers a refined aromatic constellation of pear, tangerine, a complex base of chalky minerality, fresh almond, crème patissière, orange blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and crisp, with a lovely core of fruit, fine soil signature, vibrant acids and lovely focus and cut on the long, complex and very classy finish. This is very, very good Saint-Aubin! 2025-2050+."

Vinous - "The 2020 Saint-Aubin les Murgers des Dents de Chien 1er Cru, matured in around 25% new oak, has a very fragrant and well-defined bouquet that leaps from the glass. Lots of energy here. The palate is well balanced with a crisp, saline entry. Fresh and zesty, the oak is nicely assimilated and lends real weight towards the finish that has a little more concentration than the previous vintage. This is an excellent Saint-Aubin from Jean-Michel Chartron. Closure: Diam 10 (91-93pts)"

Decanter - "Bright lemony fruit, but also a lovely density and length. Well done. The domaine owns a half-hectare here, in arguably one of the best premier crus in St-Aubin. The grapes are refrigerated and then pressed - sometimes after a light crushing - with the press cycle lasting more than two hours, being rolled once or twice. The must is run into cask without too many lees and bâtonnage is avoided. Drinking Window 2023 - 2040."

Burghound - "The altitude of the vineyard shows as the aromatic profile is prominently citrusy with its notes of just sliced green apple and carnation. The racy and beautifully detailed middle weight flavors exude more evident minerality on the sneaky long and well-balanced finale. This should also age well yet it's not so tightly wound that it couldn't be approached young if that's your preference."

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2020 Saint-Aubin 1er Cru Les Murgers des Dents de Chien is also very charming in style, bursting with aromas of pear, peach, white flowers and blanched almonds, followed by a medium to full-bodied, lively and open-knit palate that concludes with a mouthwatering finish. Always an early picker, Jean-Michel Chartron began his harvest on August 14, chaptalizing some of his cuvées. The result is a set of fine-boned, delicate wines that are certainly nicely balanced, but which lack a bit of concentration and mid-palate plenitude to my palate, and which in some instances display a discreet herbaceous streak. Picking early served Jean-Michel very well in several recent vintages, most notably 2015, but I wonder whether it was the right choice in 2020."
