Notes

Very fine, with a beautiful nose of bergamot, lime and fine herb, this continues on the palate with a very elegant, effortless sense of persistence and tension. Highly refreshing yet complete white Burgundy. Fermentation and elevage take place in 350 litre barrels, with no battonage, for 18 months. This comes from the higher part of the Fussière vineyard where the poor soil is well suited to producing white wines.

Notes
(these vines now average 30 years of age): Healthy pale yellow. Pungent aromas of citrus peel, hazelnut and flowers. Fresh, sappy wine with underlying minerality giving it a firm shape. Displays the enticing sugar/acid balance that's typical of this cuvée. (Incidentally, Bachelet-Monnot's Bourgogne Blanc communicates a Puligny-like reserve, with a silky, lemony, classically dry middle palate leading to a distinctly chalky finish. I rated this wine 88 points.)

Bachelet Monnot

Bachelet Monnot

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. 50% new oak is employed for Grand Crus whilst mush less is used for the rest of the range which, and along with using a mixture of larger-sized barrels alongside the traditional barriques, has been instrumental in eradicating oak impact on the flavour profile of the wines. The red Maranges is produced using a small proprortion of whole bunches. Form Bourgogne to Batard these are some of Burgundy's most brilliant wines from two of its most exciting young winemakers.
