Tasting Notes

As with the previous vintage, this wine was the highlight of a day's tasting: as it comes from Bachey-Legros whose Santenay 'Clos des Hâtes' I also stock I should not have been surprised at how much it impressed me. As an old vine Premier Cru vineyard La Comme produces really elegant and smooth Pinot Noir. Six generations of the Bachey-Legros family have worked on this small domaine, the particular character of their wines coming from the old vines. Age means lower-yielding vines and that plus the individual terroir translate into very concentrated grapes. Sustainable agriculture is practised.

Fruit aromas and flavours include red cherries, blackcurrants and raspberries; on the palate also some hints of liquorice and pepper. Tannins are smooth and subtle, the texture is really really silky and the finish very long. The Clos des Hates Santenay is also amazing but this is a step up. Delicious! 

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.


Tim Atkin MW named Bachey-Legros one of the Top 10 Burgundy producers to watch     Decanter   Feb 2020 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 from one of 12 premier cru vineyards in Santenay, La Comme. Old vines make it quite complex and it has a lovely silky mouthfeel
