Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

This estate was created in 2005 by two young brothers, Alex and Marc Bachelet, following a reorganisation of their family holdings in Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne and Puligny.

They have plenty of old vines over their 22 ha which, with low yields of 35 hl/ha on average, produce concentrated wines. They aren’t quite organic, but are, in their own words, ‘très lutte raisonnée’ (very sustainable) preferring the right to use treatments when absolutely necessary. It is only now that Marc feels that this careful management is having its complete effect. Their production increased in 2011 as their father, suitably impressed with what they are achieving, handed over his vines to their careful ministrations. The pair’s aim is freshness and elegance so that is why they never use bâtonnage (stirring up the lees) as they feel it hides the purity of the wines. Instead they press a little harder to get extra lees for the wines to feed off. They continue to invest in the domaine with a new purpose-built tasting room so we have no need to taste in the kitchen as before! Bachelet-Monnot is quickly establishing itself as one of the rising stars of the Côte de Beaune.
