Bachelet Monnot, Santenay, Rouge, Vieilles Vignes, 2021
Maturity:
Keep
ABV:
13%
88-90/100
Neal Martin, Vinous

The 2021 Santenay Vieilles Vignes, which includes their single vineyard cuvées this year, has a well-defined nose with brambly red fruit, briary and light sous-bois scents. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy tannins, a touch of black pepper and tobacco, quite spicy on the finish. Not complex, but there is plenty of personality and charm here.

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.
