From their domaine in Dezizes-les-Maranges, brothers Marc (left) and Alexandre (right) Bachelet, oversee a handful 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. The whites go through a long press before being fermented with indigenous yeasts in larger 350L barrels and are aged for 12 months in barrel and an additional 6 months in stainless steel tank before release. The comparisons to some of Burgundy’s elites make complete sense as the resulting wines are breathtakingly layered, racy, and achingly long. And like many of Burgundy’s best, the reds are of equal quality with an aromatic lift, grain and texture that makes them among the most compelling Pinot Noirs made in the Côte-d’Or today.

This premier cru Maranges is from 50+ year old vines in the La Fussière vineyard, at the highest elevation vineyard in the Maranges appellation at 250-350m altitude with red clay and chalk soils.  The wine is made from 30% whole cluster fruit, with indigenous yeasts, then aged in 228L barrels (20% new).

“Alexandre and Marc Bachelet have been on fire over recent vintages…My budget would be invested in the outstanding Maranges premier crus such as Fussière and Clos de la Boutière that I strongly suspect will represent some of the best values over the entire of the Côte d’Or…and if I were a millionaire, I would still buy them. ”–Neil Martin, Vinous

“The 2018 tasting reinforced my view that not only is Domaine Bachelet-Monnot at the very forefront of white Burgundy production, but that they have made serious strides with their red wines too.” -Jasper Morris MW, InsideBurgundy.com

The 2019 Maranges La Fussières 1er Cru Rouge, which contains around 30% whole bunches, has a well-defined nose with autumn leaves and tea leaf infusing the vibrant red fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a structured opening, very fresh and brimming with tension, harmonious from start to finish with a liberal sprinkling of cracked black pepper on the very sustained aftertaste. Excellent.

The 2019 Maranges 1er Cru La Fussière opens in the glass with notes of peonies, cherries, wild berries and spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and precise, with lively acids, fine tannins and a perfumed, mouthwateringly saline finish, it's a real success. This cuvée has grown, as the Bachelet brothers have acquired more parcels in this stony climat. Drink Date: 2022-2040.

An attractively floral nose is comprised by notes of plum, dark raspberry along with hints of spice and earth. There is both more volume and more refinement to the punchy medium-bodied flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the delicious, refreshing, and sneaky long finish that displays only a touch of rusticity.89-91
