RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One-third of the production was lost for the 2016 Bourgogne Pinot Noir this year. It had been racked at the end of August. It has a precise, quite detailed dark cherry and bergamot-scented bouquet that becomes quite floral with aeration. The palate is defined by its silky smooth tannin, pure red cherry and wild strawberry fruit and a finish you might well mistake for a Vosne-Romanée—yes, that good.
Barrel Sample: 89-91

Domaine Denis Bachelet, France
When Denis Bachelet took on the domaine in 1983 it covered just 1.8 hectares. Not much, but what there was, was prime land – grand cru in Charmes-Chambertin, a bit of Gevrey-Chambertin on both village and premier cru level and one parcel in the regional Bourgogne appellation. All planted with old vines. But since his grandparents had retired in 1973 everything had to be built up from scratch again. There was no cellar, no equipment. The most recent acquisitions were in 2011 when more Côte de Nuits-Villages and Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles were added to the domaine. At Domaine Bachelet the work is conducted along the lines of lutte raisonnée, sustainable viticulture. The grapes are 100% destemmed, then crushed for colour extraction. After a cool pre-fermentation maceration for up to a week, the vats get to work fermenting the juice with natural yeasts fermentation. As soon as fermentation has finished the contents of the vats are pressed off and left to settle in tank for a week before putting in barrel.

Cote de Nuits Wine

Cote d'Or, Burgundy

View all products

The origin of perhaps the world’s very finest Pinot Noir, Côte de Nuits is the northern half of the Côte d'Or and includes the famous wine villages of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux and Nuits-St-Georges.

Fine whites from Chardonnay are certainly found in the Côte de Nuits, but with much less frequency than top-performing reds made of Pinot noir. The little village of Nuits-St-Georges in its southern end gave the region its name: Côte de Nuits. The city of Dijon marks its northern border.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
