    Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
    Bachelet Monnot, Santenay, Les Prarons, Rouge, 2020

    Geographically the other side of the appellation to Charmes, and stylistically, too. This is all about very fine, poised, intricate flavours. Notes of black cherry, violet, red berry and plum skin, wrapped in the most glorious, fluffy tannins. A beauty. Next to the Chassagne border, Les Prarons is situated just under Clos des Tavannes and is planted with 50 year old vines.

    The 2020 Santenay Les Prarons Dessus presents a tightly wound, tertiary bouquet that opens almost reluctantly in the glass. The palate is well balanced and quite saline, and the 25% whole bunches are nicely integrated. Rather spicy with a touch of balsamic toward the finish. So much freshness and vibrancy in this Santenay! Excellent.

    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.
