Background

Situated over 15 hectares in Dezize-les-Maranges, close to Santenay, Domaine Jean-François Bachelet produces a wonderful line-up of wines:
Reds : Maranges 1er Cru Fussières, Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet, Pommard Les Chanlins
Whites : Santenay, Meursault and Chassagne-Montrachet
Jean-François Bachelet is now assisted by his two sons, Marc and Alex. Faithfully following in their father’s footsteps, they clearly share the same values as their parents: respect, courtesy, hospitality, and generosity.
Both in their thirties, and having gained invaluable experience from well-known properties in Burgundy, the Côtes du Rhône and as far afield as Australia, the Bachelets tend their vines with extreme care; assiduously working the soil and opting for green pruning, hand harvesting, etc.


Tasting Notes

Bright ruby hue. The bouquet expresses notes of red fruit such as red currants and blackcurrants, accentuated by tobacco nuances. The tannins are smooth and coated on the palate. Beautiful substance, not at all austere. Can be enjoyed young, but will easily keep for around ten years.
