Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Description

From their domaine in Dezizes-les-Maranges, brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, oversee an enviable catalogue of top Côte de Beaune vineyards: St. Aubin En Remilly, the top sites in Maranges, Puligny 1er Cru Folatières, Puligny 1er Cru Referts, Batard Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet, and some of the best parcels in Santenay. Since their first vintage in 2005, they have refined their approach to farming and winemaking to the point where they are now firmly established as two of Burgundy’s finest talents. The comparisons to some of Burgundy’s elites make complete sense as the resulting wines are breathtakingly layered, racy, and achingly long. 

Sourced from a .1464-ha parcel on the Puligny side planted to the equivalent of a 15,000 vines per hectare density; the wine sees no new wood and is aged in 1 and 2-year-old 350-liter barrels

Vinous: 94-96 Points

The 2020 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru has a brilliantly defined bouquet of tensile citrus fruit, petrichor and just a touch of dewy meadow. The fresh, taut palate is medium-bodied with a fine bead of acidity, focused and saline. It tightens up toward the austere finish. There is not a huge difference between this and the Les Referts and Folatières, to be honest, but it remains a bona fide stupendous white Burgundy.

Burghound: 93-96 Points

There is terrific underlying tension to the precise, powerful and strikingly textured flavors that conclude in an exceptionally compact finale that is firmly structured and built-to-age. This isn't the densest Bâtard of the 2020 vintage, but the overall sense of harmony and balance is most impressive. If you can find it, don't hesitate.
