Fabulous Puligny, deep and textured yet loaded with floral and citrus lift and tension. It comes from four very well placed sites and the youngest vines are 25 years old - the average age is considerably higher. Like all the wines, 100% indigenous ferment and only 350 litre barrels. This is an creamy, layered Puligny loaded with lime and white floral aromas and flavours as well as some sappy, classy oak and smoky reduction. It reminds of the 2010. The finish is all class.
'Everyone is on the lookout for Burgundy's next white-wine star, , and brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, who created this property in 2005 from their father's and uncle's land, are quietly making a solid claim. Their low-key winery is in Dezizelès-Maranges, at the southern tip of the Côte de Beaune, but their vineyards represent a great cross-section of Puligny, Chassagne and Meursault. Theirs is winemaking in the current, structure-minded style; lots of air for the juice, fermenting in larger barrels, finishing in steel. The wines have both character and precision, which is evident even in their village-level Puligny. " Jon Bonné,punchdrink.com
'Many of you will already be aware how much respect I have for Marc and Alec Bachelet who are doing wonderful things down in Dezize-lès-Maranges... What can I say? What more needs to be said? These guys are just making stupendous white Burgundy wines that rank alongside the best you can find, If you have not discovered the Bachelet brothers yet, it's time to do so.
