    Denis Bachelet

    About 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. Barely 4 hectares in totality, this tiny but impressive estate under the ownership of the mercurial Denis Bachelet has moved from strength to strength since 1983. Even in a region where tiny production and true artisans are the specialities, this eponymous label is a special name.

    “Finesse before all else" is the overarching philosophy behind Bachelet’s wines, and this is exceedingly pronounced in each and every cuvée he produces. For many years this was essentially a one-man operation, granting Denis an unparalleled knowledge of his vines, soils and inner working of the winery. Yields are ruthlessly managed before the scythe is swung another time by very careful selection at harvest time, including a new vibrating sorting table. New oak is used generously but in a controlled manner.

    Denis Bachelet Cote-de-Nuits Villages 2016 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (88-91)

    (50% new oak): Medium red. More musky aromas of black raspberry and smoked ham; smells sweeter than the Bourgogne. Then fat with dark berry fruit, offering compelling sweetness and ripe, fine-grained tannins. Bachelet says this wine is more closed than it was in November, but I find it quite pliant--and an outperformer for its appellation.

    Denis Bachelet Cote-de-Nuits Villages 2018 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (90-92)

    The 2018 Côtes de Nuits Villages has a wonderful, very pure bouquet of perfumed raspberry, wild strawberry and pressed flower aromas that unfold with great precision. The palate is medium-bodied with a vibrant, very focused and elegant entry, just about perfect acidity, and plenty of poise on a finish worthy of a premier cru. Yep – that good. Go buy.

    2016

    Denis Bachelet Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Les Corbeaux VV 2016 (3x75cl)

    Vinous (91-93)

    (the crop level here was a full 42 hectoliters per hectare): Moderately saturated medium red. Very ripe but reticent aromas of black cherry, dark plum, licorice and minerals. A bit more masculine and strict than the Les Evocelles (this wine is from clay soil, while the Evocelles is planted on hard rock) and the only one of these '16s to show any evidence of reduction. Finishes with a firm spine of tannins and a subtle salty character. A rather powerful wine from three parcels, the oldest planted in the 1920s and the youngest following the 1985 frost.
