Vincent Bachelet Santenay
Originally from Maranges and son of Bernard Bachelet, Vincent settled in Chassagne-Montrachet in 2008 in a beautiful house with a large vaulted cellar from the 18th century where his barrels are stored today. The 17 hectare domaine produces 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay mainly from Côte de Beaune and an enclave in the Côte de Nuits. Recently the winery has undergone substantial upgrading.
Located at the southern extremity of Côte de Beaune, Santenay produces both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Bachelet's vineyards are located on clay-limestone soil and benefits from a southerly exposure to the sun. His vines are some of the village's oldest at 60 years old which brings depth and concentration to the wine.
The grapes are harvested by hand, sorted and completely destemmed. Maceration and vinification take two weeks at controlled temperatures. Regular remontage and pigeage is carried out during alcoholic fermentation. Malo-lactic fermentation and ageing occurs in a combination of new and old French oak barrels for for 18 months.
