Denis Bachelet

A very small domaine operating out of modest, tiny cellars in Gevrey-Chambertin, Bachelet is renowned among Burgundy lovers for his exceedingly rare Charmes-Chambertin and 1er Cru les Corbeaux. The style is very refined and svelte with a velvety texture and bright, forward fruit. Classic burgundy to stand among the best in the region, if you can spot some of this exceptional wine, best not to hesitate in snapping it up.

Denis Bachelet Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru VV 2012 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (97-99)

The bad news is that this year there are only three barrels of the 2012 Charmes Chambertin Vielles Vignes instead of the usual eight, since the ancient vines were pole-axed by coulure during the season. Denis explained that the soils here are very shallow, 20cm until you hit the bedrock, and the grapes, what is left of them, tend to ripen easily. What makes it special is that Denis’ parcel lies on a part of the vineyard next to Mazoyeres whereby the limestone from the Combe d’Orveau eroded and tumbled into the climat. It has an exquisite bouquet with mineral rich dark berry fruit, blackberry and raspberry leaf, subtle dried violet petal scents, though not as pronounced as others from this vineyard. The palate is beautifully balanced, nonchalant and self-effacing. The black and red fruit are mingling together and there is nigh perfect acidity on the finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is totally entrancing – but these days I expect nothing less from Denis Bachelet.

Wine Advocate (93-95)

There is double the amount of 2013 Charmes Chambertin Vieilles Vignes compared to last year. Then again, last year there was only three barrels! It has a very precise, mineral-rich bouquet that takes its time to unfold, therefore demands a lot of just hanging around and swirling the glass in your hand. Then after two or three minutes those beautiful crushed violet scents emerge and you are instantly seduced. The palate is tight at the moment but it is very pure with dark cherries intermingling with cola, orange sorbet and a hint of marmalade. There is a lot of primal energy here, although it does not possess the peacock’s tail that adorned the 2012 last year. Still, this is a marvelous Charmes-Chambertin to enjoy over the next 15 to 20 years.
