Domaine Jean-Claude Bachelet et Fils
Domaine Jean-Claude Bachelet et Fils' estate extends over 10 hectares with parcels of vines in Saint-Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. A long, rigorous and careful work is effectuated in the vines, including ploughing and the implementation of sustainable viticulture to the highest degree. Indeed, the quality of the wine is a result of the vineyard producing heathy grapes with moderated yields.
The estate owns more than 20 different named-parcels of vines. Vinification and ageing are fulfilled so that each wine reflects it’s unique terroir. Vinification is natural with indigenous yeasts and slow fermentations. Aged for 18 months in french oak barrels on fine lees. Two winters in the cellar contribute to the finesse, depth and structure of the wine necessary for its good ageing capacity.
The estate has its roots in the middle of the 17 the century. By 1648, Pierre Bachelet was growing vines in Chassagne-Montrachet. Today, Jean-Claude and his sons, Benoît and Jean-Baptiste, exploit this inheritance. The approach is traditional from the culture of the vine to the vinification and the ageing of the wines. Sustain the heritage and nurture wines that express their native land, this is the philosophy of the estate.
