About the Producer
Domaine Bachelet-Monnot is situated in the village of Dezize-lès-Maranges, southwest of Santenay and Chassagne-Montarchet in the Côte de Beaune. It consists of 10ha of owned vineyards as well as a further 10ha on long-term lease. These cover the appellations of Santenay, Maranges, Chassagne- Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. Its vineyards are farmed organically with strict de-budding to reduce the yields and concentrate the flavours, whilst the winemaking philosophy is very much one of non-intervention.
Marc and Alex do not stir the yeast lees in the barrel – a process known as battonage – to extract extra yeasty flavours and only use a small amount of new oak ageing. In 2012, they introduced larger oak barrels to reduce oxygen contact allowing their wines to age longer in the barrel giving them greater stability, depth and finesse.
Serving Guide: Serve chilled at between 10-11°C or after about 1 hour in the fridge. Use larger bowl glasses if you can, to let the wine breathe and release all the aromas and flavours. Drinking beautifully now but will certainly give marvellous pleasure for the two or more years

Citrus, Brioche and hints of Honey
Domaine Bachelet-Monnot is a rising star in Burgundy and this excellent and mature village Chassagne-Montrachet shows exactly why. The talented young winemakers Marc and Alex Bachelet adopt a very natural, labour-intensive approach to wine-making. Soils are ploughed, vine health carefully monitored, herbicides are forbidden and strict de-budding is carried out to limit yields, whilst all grapes are hand picked at optimum ripeness. This wine is first vilified in small oak barrels – 25% of which being new oak to give a rich deep flavour and texture. Large oak barrels are then used to age the wine for 12 months.
The result is this outstanding and truly delicious Chassagne-Montrachet! The nose is laden with citrus aromas with peach and honey notes. Toasted almonds and brioche follows from the well-integrated oak. The palate is rich and buttery with expressive ripe fruits.
Jancis Robinson – the internationally respected wine journalist – rightly gives this wine an excellent 16.5/20

Food and Wine Pairing
With a quality white burgundy like this Puligny-Montrachet, pair it with food that is rich and cream. So why not try it with dishes like Turbet with Hollandaise Sauce or Lobster Thermidor. Equally good would be Mushroom Risotto with shavings of Black Truffle or a creamy Cheese Soufflé.
