About The Wine
The Bachelet brothers’ Bourgogne Blanc comes from 40 year old vines in Puligny, metres away from the boarder of the Puligny Montrachet AOC.
It should, therefore, come as no surprise that this wine seriously over delivers. There is a cool citrus lift to the nose and a pithy core of fruit. Great texture and creaminess, a result of long slow lees work, and also a complexity rarely seen at this level. The pedigree of the fruit shines through but the brothers’ deft hand has harnessed it beautifully.
Now widely considered shining stars of Burgundy it's hard to believe that the brother Bachelet were once the new kids on the block.
Marc and Alexandre created Bachelet Monnot in 2005 with land from their father and uncle. They have small but outstanding white holdings, primarily in and around Puligny Montrachet, from which they produce pitifully small amounts of stunning crus. Their red holdings are Santenay and Maranges, lesser known villages, but ones that, in the hands of these two, should be given serious consideration.
They work all their vineyards organically and their low key winery in Dezize-les-Maranges is home to a structure driven winemaking style of precision and patience.
Stand by for an exceptional Bourgogne Blanc, show-stopping 1er Cru whites and reds that will surprise and delight with their value.
