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. Every year of success is reinvested, and on our visit this year we could see clear evidence of this with buildings renovated and a new chai installed. Pretty much organic, but like many growers they reserve the right to intervene in the vines, should the need arise.
“Ripe stone fruit and floral aromas underpinned by lemon zest on the palate. Refreshing and rounded, this will be approachable early on. No obvious oak character, the wine was aged in large neutral barrels.”
