Founded in 2005, Domaine Bachelet-Monnot is a wine producer in Dezize-lès-Maranges, southern-end of the Côte d’Or in Burgundy. Marc and Alex Bachelet created Domaine Bachelet-Monnot from the union of the vineyards held by their father and their uncle.

Marc and Alex’s grandfather was a vigneron and created Domaine Bernard Bachelet et Fils in Chassagne-Montrachet. Their father, Jean-François Bachelet, worked at this estate for his entire life. Jean-François was also a leading advocate for Maranges getting its AOC status. Prior to 1989, the wine was sold as Côte de Beaune Villages.

The two brothers started with 10 hectares but now farm just over 22 hectares of vines. It is a mix of family-owned vineyards and long-term leased vineyards consisting of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The Bachelet brothers adopt a labor-intensive approach in the vineyards to achieve their goals of naturally balanced and precise wines.

No herbicide is used and the rows are ploughed regularly to manage weeds, aerate the soil, and cut the horizontal roots to encourage deep growth. Strict de-budding is carried out to keep the yields low.

All grapes are handpicked at optimum ripeness.

Bachelet-Monnot is a rising star and has been captivating the wine world right from the start and with each subsequent release outdoing the last, it’s a Domaine to keep an eye on.
