Bachelet-Monnot

Alex and Marc Bachelet started their domaine in 2005 from a portion of the family vineyards. By 2011 they had acquired 22 hectares of old to very old vines in Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet.

They farm with sustainable methods that they describe as ‘très lutte raisonnée’, which literally translates as "the very reasoned struggle." In the cellar they are extremely meticulous with their use of sulphur, preferring to "micro-dose" when and where necessary and never at bottling. They use 350 liter barrels to avoid any overt "flavor" of oak spice and emphasize the super precise, mineral flavors and taught structure.
Marc explains that the small doses of sulphur allowed him to bottle the wine with very little free SO2 and still feel confident they are well protected from the elements.

The results are stunning: clean, pure, transparent and bursting with mineral energy. There is very little to no reduction on the wines, yet they seem to be built to last for many years.

Professional Reviews

Burghound

BH 90-92 June 2020
"A slightly riper though still agreeably fresh nose offers up notes of ever-so-mildly exotic white orchard fruit along with the hallmark citrus nuances. The racy, intense and beautifully well-detailed flavors exude both sappy dry extract and minerality on the saline-infused finish where a hint of wood gradually emerges." -Allen Meadows

Antonio Galloni

AG 91-93 January 2020
"The 2018 Saint-Aubin En Remilly 1er Cru requires a little coaxing from the glass, but is well worth the effort, revealing beautifully defined malic aromas, mixed with wet limestone and fumé scents that blossom after a couple of minutes. The palate is extremely well balanced with a fine bead of acidity that cuts through the green apple and fresh pear notes. Quite linear and taut, it reveals fine depth toward the finish, though it needs just a tad more persistence on the aftertaste. This should evolve into a top-rank En Remilly." -Neal Martin
