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.
Produced from 2 ha of vines made up of 7 different parcels, each vinified separately in 20% new oak 350lt demi-muids. Classic Puligny, the bouquet is piercing, rich with hints of freshly struck match box. The palate is tightly knit with a fine steely core, lemon citrus fruits with a touch of underlying honey. Freshly baked almond flavours round off the palate beautifully. A super wine!
