Domaine Bachelet-Monnot

In 2005 Marc and Alex Bachelet formed their domaine with the aid of their Uncle Monnot and father. Given the combination of exceptional vineyards, an excellent vintage, and the brothers’ attention to detail in the vines and in the cellar, the first release of the domaine’s Puligny wines garnered immediate recognition, locally as well as internationally. In the conservative world of Burgundy’s top communes, such rapid rise to prominence is as rare as it is telling. The brothers do the Côte de Beaune’s rising generation proud.

Burgundy
The French wine-growing region of Burgundy is legendary for both red Burgundy (Pinot Noir) and white Burgundy wines (Chardonnay). Burgundy lies on the eastern side of France and covers just over 100 miles. Burgundy's moderate climate with warm summers and cold winters allow the high-maintenance Pinot Noir grape to grow particularly well. Burgundy wines come from several distinct sub-regions, each with its own particular character. White Burgundy is a Chardonnay Lover's delight, Pouilly-Fuisse is the appellation known for the finest white wines of the Maconnais region in southern Burgundy. Chablis is located in northern Burgundy and produces light, dry wines from the Chardonnay grape. Beaujolais is an important wine region famous for its vibrant, fruity red wines made from Gamay.
