About The Wine

Maranges is one of Burgundy's most southerly villages, at the bottom end of what is normally revered as Chardonnay country. But here you can find fantastic value Pinot Noirs...

La Fussiere is a single vineyard, and its Pinot Noir is one of Bachelet's calling cards. With 30% whole bunch and some oak aging is has plenty of structure but we like the bounce and tension of the wine that enlivens the ripe plum and black cherry characters.

Another first rate effort from the Bachelet boys, and in very short supply.

About Bachelet-Monnot

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.

Additional Info

From The Importer

The soils of this site are particularly rich in limestone, giving the wine a lot of freshness and powdery grip—which beautifully balances the generous texture and fruit flavours of sweet plum, ripe cherry and anise. The Bachelet aim has always been to craft finer, more aromatic reds from the Côte’s southern reaches and the introduction of whole-bunch vinification (30% in this cuvée) has helped further this aim.

Jasper Morris MW opines, “If you don’t know or don’t rate Maranges, this wine is the wake-up call.” Hear, hear! Look at the reviews, keep in mind that this is Burgundy 1er cru, and then reflect on the price—bargain is an understatement!

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

Wine Advocate

“The 2019 Maranges 1er Cru La Fussière opens in the glass with notes of peonies, cherries, wild berries and spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and precise, with lively acids, fine tannins and a perfumed, mouthwateringly saline finish, it's a real success. This cuvée has grown, as the Bachelet brothers have acquired more parcels in this stony climat.” - William Kelley (Wine Advocate)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
