Bachelet, Jean-Claude

From a .16 hectare parcel planted in the mid-1970's. It has a deep clay top soil that is ploughed to push the roots to go down to limestone subsoil. Native yeast fermentation in stainless steel. Aged in French oak barrels for 24 months (approximately 15% new). 30-45 g/L sulfur added at bottling.

 

90-93 points
"Aromas of peach, apricot and pear combine with those of earth, resin and a hint of herbal tea. The succulent, indeed even opulent large-scaled flavors possess a highly seductive mouth feel before displaying fine depth and length on the balanced finale. While this certainly could be approached young, it should also be capable of rewarding 5 to 8 years of cellar time."
