Domaine Bachelet Jean Claude


The estate has its origins in the middle of the 17th century. As early as 1648, Pierre
Bachelet has been cultivating vines in Chassagne-Montrachet. Today, Jean-Claude and his sons, Benoît and Jean-Baptiste, run this estate in the commune of Saint-Aubin. The approach is traditional, from the cultivation of the vines to the vinification and maturing of the wines.
The estate covers 10 hectares in the vineyards of Saint-Aubin,
Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. A long, rigorous and meticulous work is carried out in the vineyards with in particular an important work of the ground, prohibiting the use of chemical weedkiller for more than 10 years. The practice of biodynamic viticulture (not certified) since 2012, has gradually replaced a viticulture in reasoned fight to extend to the whole estate from the 2016 vintage. Indeed, it is first in the vineyard that the quality of the wine is at stake with healthy grapes and moderate yields.
The estate has more than 20 different climates from the Burgundy appellation to the Grand Cru. The vinification and maturation are carried out so that each wine evokes the terroir of which it is the fruit. The vinification is as natural as possible
