Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

The Bachelet brothers, Alex and Marc, have quickly established Bachelet-Monnot as one of the star estates of the southern Côte de Beaune.

Its creation in 2005 followed a reorganisation of the Bachelet family holdings in Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet. It was boosted in 2011 when Bachelet senior, suitably impressed with their achievements, handed over the rest of his vines to their careful ministrations. They now have 22 ha of which 8 ha are in the commune of Maranges. Many of the vines are old giving low yields which average 35 hl/ha. The estate is not quite organic but is ‘très lutte raisonnée’ (very sustainable) because the brothers prefer the right to perform treatments when absolutely necessary. The combination of those old vines and this careful management of the vineyards results in pure and concentrated fruit in the wines. They therefore eschew bâtonnage (the stirring up of lees in barrel) as they feel it hides the purity of their whites. Alex and Marc also use larger, 350 litre barrels for their whites, as the lower ratio of oak to wine avoids any oakiness in the wines. The wines’ crystalline flavours match the style of the crisp, modern tasting room, itself a contrast with the family’s old courtyard in Dezize-lès-Maranges.

Vintage guide

The region basked under the summer sun in 2022, and thanks to cool nights the wines have avoided excess alcohol while retaining elegance, it all looks very promising. The 2021 vintage was severely affected by frost in the spring which means yields are historically low, the wines are fresh and juicy. 2020 was one of the earliest vintages on record following a warm summer but the wines have an appealing freshness too, like a combination of the previous two vintages. There was an absence of frost in 2019 but yields were still restricted, this time by drought, the resulting wines have great richness and concentration. A very good vintage in 2018 with no frosts in the early part of the season though rain in the first half of summer caused some disease pressure. Hail affected Nuits St-Georges and the Hautes-Côtes reducing yields. The resulting wines are rich and concentrated. Quantities in 2017 will be better than 2016 with equally good results. They are more red fruited than black, showing great elegance. 2016 proved a rollercoaster of a season with everything thrown at the growers in the early season but what fruit survived through to harvest is very good. Quantities, however, are small. 2015 is a memorable vintage for red Burgundy, certainly on the rich side. The red wines of 2014 are more ‘classic’, have a great combination of red and black fruits as well as being charmingly approachable in their youth. After a late start and a cool summer, a dry September saved the day in 2013, the Pinot being light but very pure.
