Jean-Michel Chartron
Mr
Jean-Michel Chartron heads a domaine run by his family in Puligny-Montrachet since 1873 and is one of the most highly regarded grower in the area. The two monopoles– the grand cru Chevalier-Montrachet, Clos des Chevaliers and the Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru, Clos de la Pucelle – have been in the family since 1917. We will have the extraordinary chance to taste them together with other great and iconic wines of the domaine, thanks to the kindness of Jean-Michel who will deplete his personal cellar as these precious bottles of 2014 have become collectibles. As the President of the Puligny Growers’ Association, Jean-Michel is at the forefront to deal with new challenges, and will share with us some insights on topics such as responses to climatic changes, and why the wines of Puligny have become the rarest and most sought after white wines in the world.
William Kelley
Wine Advocate Reviewer
William Kelley developed a love of wine while studying at Oxford, where he presided over the University's prestigious Wine Circle for three years while completing a doctorate in history. In addition to tastings with many of the Old World's greatest producers, he brought many of California's most celebrated and exciting wineries to Oxford for the first time. Kelley had the unique privilege to cut his teeth as a taster on many of the great wines of Burgundy of the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. After a stint covering Burgundy for Decanter magazine and working harvests in both California and the Côte d'Or, he made the happy move to The Wine Advocate in 2017. His first-hand experience making wine informs the way he writes about it. Today, he reviews the wines of Burgundy, Champagne, Madeira and English Sparkling Wine.
