The vineyard contains ancient vines, up to 90 years old on 1 parcel. Vinification sees 20% whole bunch ferment and aging in 25% new oak for one year. An explosion of exotic red fruits, soothing, polished tannins and an underlay of rusticity giving an added dimension. A great expression of the terroir of this appellation.

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.

The bouquet is intense, ripe, smoky and powerful. The palate is equally full, almost brooding with layers of sweet cherry fruit, raspberry coulis and confiture, equally balanced by a tight minerality and quenching freshness. The oak is careful and underpins the fruit and texture perfectly. A beautifully crafted wine.
