"Marc and Alexandre Bachelet produce wines of immaculate quality with hints of modernity."
The soils of the Côte de Beaune are covered with limestone scree coming from the top of the hill, red silts deposited in the glacial era, and rocks resulting from the alteration of the underlying geological strata. Brown limestone and stony soils characterise the southern part of the Côte d'Or. At the top of slope, the soils are lean, very limestone, they enrich themselves in clay going down. There are three different hillsides: those of the Corton mountain, those of the Côte des Blancs and those of Chassagne, Santenay and Maranges.
A Passionate Lineage
Domaine Bachelet-Monnot was only formed in 2005 but has been cranking out the hits from the go, with each subsequent release out-doing the last one. The two brothers, Marc and Alexandre created this property from their father’s and uncle’s land, making this young estate a family business. Strong from their experience in local well-known vineyards and abroad, the brothers receive a well deserved recognition - the are the rising stars of Burgundy.
