Produced from 2 ha of vines made up of 5 different parcels, each vinified separately. The Bachelet brothers saw increased yields of 40-45 hl/ha in 2022, a welcome return to a 'normal' harvest. Minerality abounds, with a tight, tropical fruit structure. Outstanding!

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.

A rich, expansive style of Puligny, with a core of rich, ripe and opulent white stone fruits, peach and cereal. The steely acidity, so prevalent in 2022, balances this ripe and sun-kissed fruit perfectly. A hint of creaminess on the long spicy finish adds structure and texture to a great wine.
Try with Risotto with asparagus and St George's mushrooms.
This wine was matured in 25% new oak, using larger 350lit demi-muids to restrain the oak character for 12 months, with regular racking and finished in steel tanks for 6 months prior to bottling.
