Maranges 1er Cru Clos de la Boutière 2017, Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

MARA045
This is a very precise wine with a lovely ripe underbelly. Produced from a single 1.5ha plot of 80 year old vines, the soils are very deep. As Marc says, “the vineyard has everything; it is easy to make great wine here.”

Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

This relatively young domaine was established in 2005 by brothers Marc and Alex Bachelet along with their father Jean François and Uncle Monnot. Situated in the village of Dezize-lès-Maranges, southwest of Santenay, the domaine consists of 10ha of owned vineyards as well as a further 10 on long-term lease, covering the appellations of Santenay, Maranges and Puligny Montrachet. This is a star domaine on the rise. The vineyards are farmed organically with strict de-budding to reduce the yields, whilst the winemaking philosophy is very much one of non-intervention. No battonage, only a small use of new oak, with the introduction of larger oak barrels in 2012, and long ageing in the barrel which gives great stability to the wines. We are very taken with the white wines of this domaine which offer great depth and finesse.

Tasting Notes

Rich and ripe, filled with strawberry and raspberry fruits, a touch of vanilla from the 25% oak ageing, and fine tannins.
