Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Folatières 2017, Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

PULI715
A wine that is both elegant and poised yet sumptuous and decadent, it is the ultimate expression of Chardonnay. On the same contour and with the same soil composition as Chevalier Montrachet, this 1er Cru is renowned for its minerality.

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

This is so regal. Aged in 25% new oak,this wine shows both weight and power with a matchbox character giving added identity. Melon and pineapple fruit provide a beautiful fruit set, there are nuts and butterscotch notes, as well as a lovely steely balance.

Food Matches

Enjoy with rich fish dishes, pork, chicken and anything in a cream sauce or with mushrooms are highly recommended.
