Domaine Bachelet-Monnot La Fussiere Blanc, Maranges Premier Cru 2013 150cl Magnum

The domaine was founded in 2005 by brothers, Marc and Alex Bachelet. After a number of years gaining winemaking experience at home and abroad, they struck out on their own in Burgundy aided by their family – grandfather, Bernard had established Domaine Bernard Bachelet et Fils in Chassagne-Montrachet and their father was winemaker here also. Since their first vintage the ascent to prominence has been swift.

They farm over 20Ha on a combination of family and leased plots in Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet.

Work in the vineyards is characterised by a respect fro the environment - no herbicides are used, favouring regular ploughing instead.

In the cellar the percentage of new oak used is roughly 25%; the wine is aged for twelve months before being racked for another six to eight months of ageing on the lees before bottling. No batonnage is undertaken. Elevage is a long, hands-off process. They practice pre-ox for whites, a technique where the pressed juice is allowed to oxidise before fermentation, stabilising the finished wine and eliminating the risk of prem-ox (the wine ageing prematurely).

The nose on this 2013 vintage offers a up nose of citrus, apple, flint and a gentle spice. The palette is ample, very textural and with prominent minerality. Lot's of character and a real purity of fruit.
