Bachelet, Jean-Claude

The basic Chassagne bottling is made entirely from 50 year old vines in the lieu-dit Les Encégnières, which is shared by both Chassagne and Puligny. Though it is a large vineyard, only a tiny piece of Les Encégnières extends into Chassagne, just below the famous Bâtard-Montrachet. This prime source allows the Bachelets to make an exceptional village bottling of uncommon richness.

"There is evident exoticism present on the white and yellow orchard fruit aromas and in particular mango and white peach. The opulent, even lavishly rich broad-shouldered flavors also coat the palate with dry extract while delivering very fine depth and persistence on the clean, dry and citrusy finale."
