2019 Bachelet-Monnot Puligny Montrachet
Fruit for this exquisite wine hails from 30-year-old Puligny vines from four different lieu-dits: Les Meix, Corvée des Vignes, Noyer Bret, Les Houlières. Vibrant and energetic, the wine shows its class with clear minerality and terroir expression. The precise palate is beautifully balanced, with a fine thread of acidity framing its pure fruit flavors. Aged for 12 months in barrel + 6 months in tank. A truly exceptional wine!
Lieu-dit is a French term that refers to a specific part of a vineyard recognized for its historical or topographical specificities.

Arden and Margaux met Marc and Alexandre at a trade tasting in New York City. The brothers were pouring their lineup of newly bottled 2017 and that day was the first time the wine was being poured and tasted in the US. Their wines were hands down the standout stars of the trip and lucky for us, and now you, we were able to get first dibs on an allocation. 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. This is an underground producer to invest in.
“Many of you will already be aware how much respect I have for Marc and Alec Bachelet who are doing wonderful things down in Dezize-lès-Maranges… What can I say? What more needs to be said? These guys are just making stupendous white Burgundy wines that rank alongside the best you can find. If you have not discovered the Bachelet brothers yet, it’s time to do so.” – Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
