Bachelet-Monnot, Bourgogne Blanc 2016
Marc & Alexandre Bachelet
At first, the wine has a fruity attack but it refines and refocuses as it dances across your palate with a long, tapering, Puligny-esque finish. Bourgogne from the Puligny commune that very much tastes like it; refined, yellow fruits turning to citrus rind and minerals on a fine finish. Very sophisticated and attractive Bourgogne.
This superb Bourgogne Blanc is drawn from some seriously impressive terroir - 1.3-hectares of 20-50-year-old vines in the Puligny area (spread across four parcels) and a plot of young vine Chassagne on chalky soil. These vineyards combined with the quality of the viticulture, harvest date and confident, hands-off winemaking, gifts one of the best value white Burgundies in our portfolio.
In January 2005, after years of travelling France and the rest of the world gaining vital wine-making experience two budding young vignerons, brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, set up this Domaine that spans 10 hectares over the Maranges, Santenay and Puligny-Montrachet communes. With a burning desire to work with nature to make the finest possible wines, Marc and Alexandre adopt a very natural, labour-intensive approach to wine-making. Soils are ploughed, vine health carefully monitored, herbicides are forbidden and strict de-budding is carried out to limit yields, whilst all grapes are hand picked at optimum ripeness. This Domaine is a rapidly rising star. Their focus is on eradicating oak impact on the flavour profile of the wines. Form Bourgogne to Batard these are some of Burgundy's most brilliant wines from two of its most exciting young winemakers.
