Tasting Notes

The story

Six generations of the Bachey-Legros family have worked on this small domaine, the character of the wines coming from the old vines. The low-yielding vines and terroir translate into very concentrated grapes. Sustainable agriculture is practised.

The wine

Full tasting notes are coming soon but in brief... I rated this village Burgundy higher than a number of Premier and Grand Cru Burgundies at a recent tasting. Fruit aromas and flavours include red cherries, blackcurrants and raspberries. The texture is very smooth and the finish very long.

If you would like a single vineyard Pinot Noir from the same producer, try their Santenay 'Clos des Hâtes'.

Food Pairing

Recommended to drink with roast chicken, turkey, guinea fowl, duck, goose, pheasant, pigeon, veal, calves liver, lamb, pork, mushroom based dishes. Ideal with a traditional Christmas turkey meal.

Awards said of the winery in June 2014:
"I was intrigued to learn that six generations of the Bachey family have run this domaine. Nothing unusual about that, but each of those generations has been an only child. There are presently 18 hectares under vine in the appellations of Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Maranges, with a healthy stock of old-vine material. Today it is Christiane who runs the domaine with her two sons, Samuel and Lenaic. This was a fine set of wines that come recommended."

This is a beautiful old vine Pinot Noir with a lovely silky mouthfeel. Maranges is not a well-known appellation but this old vine wine is superb and offers good value in what has become an expensive region
