Denis Bachelet Gevrey Chambertin VV 2018

Denis Bachelet Gevrey Chambertin VV 2018

100% Pinot Noir. Denis Bachelet is one of those very few winemakers in Burgundy whose wines have managed to achieve iconic status. This status is remarkably incongruous for a man who is himself invariably soft-spoken, gracious, and polite. A portion of his cult-like renown may be due to the scarcity of wines produced by such a diminutive estate: at 3.85 hectares, it is less than one-third the size of Domaine Armand Rousseau, Bachelet’s co-regent of Gevrey. But the greater reason for the Bachelet prominence is the incomparable quality of his wine. As the great Clive Coates has written: “The Denis Bachelet style produces wines of intensity, great elegance, and subtle in the best sense. They are concentrated, harmonious, pure and understated.” These are burgundies that have been crafted by a master. It doesn't get much better than these wines.

Tasting Notes
"85-year-old vines. 1.5 ha (3.7 acres) total. 40% new oak. Light toast. Barrel sample. Very interesting aroma because although the fruit is so dark, it is not sweet. Intense black cherry. Generous yet tightly wound thanks to the freshness and the cool tannic finesse (and probably also the cool temperature of the barrel sample). Wine is capricious, volunteers Denis Bachelet. Precision in the fruit. Already relatively open yet promises more. Dark-fruited elegance." - Julia Harding, MW
