Type: Red Wine
Grape: Pinot Noir
From their domaine in Dezizes-les-Maranges, brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, oversee an enviable catalogue of top Côte de Beaune vineyards: St. Aubin En Remilly, the top sites in Maranges, Puligny 1er Cru Folatières, Puligny 1er Cru Referts, Batard Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet, and some of the best parcels in Santenay. Since their first vintage in 2005, they have refined their approach to farming and winemaking to the point where they are now firmly established as two of Burgundy’s finest talents.
Fruit for this aromatic and sophisticated Bourgogne Rouge comes from 60 to 80-year-old vines and is spontaneously fermented in concrete tanks with roughly 15% whole bunches.
Notes of cherries and red and black fruits, subtly framed by a touch of used oak. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a juicy core of fruit and soft tannins.
