We have followed brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet for some years since they took over at this 10-hectare Domaine in Maranges. A Domaine totally on track: from both improvements in the cellar buildings, to the pursuit of natural greatness in the vineyards. They even have three different types of grape press to respect every terroir. Pretty much organic, but like many growers they reserve the right to intervene in the vines, should the need arise. Wines that showcase purity of fruit and the vineyard sites. Notable as standard bearers for the relatively unknown Maranges appellation. For the whites, gentle pressing and controlled use of oxygen in the élevage of the wines is more important than excessive batonnage (lees stirring), resulting in exceptionally pure wines.
“Impressively dense, with a honeyed character. Whilst the fruit is ripe and forward it is not overdone and there is pear and a floral character amongst the complexity. Textured on the palate and tremendously long on the finish.”
