Winemaker Notes

Folatieres runs along the upper slope of the premier cru band, on the same contour as Chevalier-Montrachet. The Bachelet-Monnot parcel is in the northwest corner, up near the premier cru of Les Truffieres. As such, wines from Folatieres gravitate toward minerality, and those from this domain bend particularly in that direction. The boys farm just over one acre of vines here that average 50 years of age.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 93
Once again discreet wood can be found on the softly exotic aromas of white and yellow orchard fruit together with plenty of floral elements. There is more minerality if less seductivity to the delicious medium-bodied flavors that are also blessed with an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the delicious orange zest-inflected finale. This is also really quite good if clearly from a ripe vintage.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
JM 91
Jasper Morris

Pretty mid lemon yellow with an attractive bouquet, including some floral aspects, very welcome in Puligny. The flowers are on the sunnier side and the bouquet take on a more honeyed note. Slightly thick texture, with continuity of the honeyed element, but with time in the glass the fresher part of the fruit builds to take over the foreground.

Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Marc Bachelet & Alex Bachelet Winery Image
In 2005 Marc and Alex Bachelet formed their domaine with the aid of their Uncle Monnot and father. Given the combination of exceptional vineyards, an excellent vintage, and the brothers’ attention to detail in the vines and in the cellar, the first release of the domaine’s Puligny wines garnered immediate recognition, locally as well as internationally. In the conservative world of Burgundy’s top communes, such rapid rise to prominence is as rare as it is telling. The brothers do the Côte de Beaune’s rising generation proud.

The domaine farms just over twenty hectares (50 acres) of vines. It is a mix of family-owned vineyards and long-term leased vineyards. Marc and Alex’s grandfather was a vigneron and created Domaine Bernard Bachelet et Fils in Chassagne-Montrachet. Their father, Jean-François Bachelet, made wine for most of his professional life at this domaine.

Following his studies at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, Marc did internships at domaines Lucien Muzard in Santenay and Parent in Pommard, as well as stints in the southern Rhône and in Australia. After similar studies, his younger brother Alex did internships at domaines Nouveau in the Hautes Côtes and Bouzereau in Meursault, as well as at Monteillet in Côte-Rôtie. Both boys worked five harvests at their father’s domaine prior to embarking on Bachelet-Monnot.

The seat of the domaine is the family homestead in Dezize-lès-Maranges, just southwest of Santenay. In the vineyards, no herbicide is used and the rows are plowed regularly to manage weeds, aerate the soil, and cut the horizontal roots to encourage deep growth. In the cellar, the percentage of new barrels used is roughly 25%; the wine is aged for twelve months before being racked into tank (or, in the case of the reds, cement vats) for another six to eight months of ageing on the lees before bottling. This, to one degree or another, is the general pattern of élevage for all of the wines made here of both colors.

Total annual production in a normal vintage is around 8,300 cases, roughly divided equally between red and white wine.
