Gift Set includes:
1 bottle Bachelet-Monnot Chassagne-Montrachet 2019 (Chardonnay)
1 bottle Bachelet-Monnot Puligny-Montrachet 2019 (Chardonnay)
From their domaine in Dezizes-les-Maranges, brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet of Bachelet-Monnot oversee an enviable collection 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. The whites go through a long press before being fermented with indigenous yeasts in larger barrels and are aged for 12 months in barrel and an additional 6 months in stainless steel tank before release.
Fruit for this Chassagne-Montrachet comes from 30-year-old sustainably-farmed vines from six different parcels across the region. Aromas of honeysuckle and ripe lemons. On the palate, notes of ripe stone fruit, citrus and vanilla, leading into a long, plush finish.
The Puligny-Montrachet comes from 4 different parcels in the Côte de Beaune, where the vines are 30+ years old. Vibrant and energetic, this wine shows its class with clear minerality and terroir expression. The precise palate is beautifully balanced, rich, but with with a fine thread of acidity framing the pure flavors of lime zest, green apple, wet limestone and a touch of sea salt.
