Variety: Pinot Noir
Brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet are known as some of Burgundy’s finest talents. Only starting in 2005, they used land holdings that belonged to their grandfather, and then their father after that. They have an array of seriously enviable plots strewn between Puligny, Chassagne, Meursault, and Santenay, all in the south of the Cote de Beaune. While they’re known primarily for their structured and precise Chardonnays, their Pinot Noir are equally charming and intensely aromatic. Even for being so new to Burgundy, these brothers have quickly moved their way among Burgundy’s most elite producers.
Neil Martin of Vinous has proclaimed the Bachelet wines coming out of the Maranges Premier Crus “represent some of the best values of the entire Cote d’Or… and if I were a millionaire, I would still buy them.” Maranges is a small appellation in the south of the Cote de Beaune. “La Fussiere” touts 50 year old vines while also being the highest elevation vineyard in the entire appellation. The wine ages in smaller barrels, 20% of which are new.
