This is our maiden allocation from the brothers’ vines in Chanlins, a village site that lies just above the 1er Cru of the same name on the Volnay border. The 0.25-hectare parcel of 40-year-old vines comes from Alex and Marc Bachelet’s father, who sold the fruit to négociants until 2011. At 400 metres, it’s one of the highest and steepest vineyards of the Côte de Beaune, which, along with the stony, chalk-rich soils, results in a pretty and mid-weighted ‘Volnay’ expression of Pommard. In most years, the wine ferments with a good percentage of whole bunches, yet this year, the Bachelets used appreciably less, partly due to the ripeness of the stems and partly to help fill the tank.

Reviews

“Slightly less density in the colour than the others, with a floral note from some whole bunches. It was decided to keep extraction down here and so less colour came out. Very pretty on the palate too, though with some tannins and the mildest suggestion of a herbaceous note at the finish. A pleasing wine though, overall.”
