Alex and Marc Bachelet started their domaine in 2005 from a portion of the family vineyards. By 2011 they had acquired 22 hectares of old to very old vines in Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet.

They farm with sustainable methods that they describe as ‘très lutte raisonnée’, which literally translates as "the very reasoned struggle." In the cellar they are extremely meticulous with their use of sulphur, preferring to "micro-dose" when and where necessary and never at bottling. They use 350 liter barrels to avoid any overt "flavor" of oak spice and emphasize the super precise, mineral flavors and taught structure.
Marc explains that the small doses of sulphur allowed him to bottle the wine with very little free SO2 and still feel confident they are well protected from the elements.

The results are stunning: clean, pure, transparent and bursting with mineral energy. There is very little to no reduction on the wines, yet they seem to be built to last for many years.

BH 92
"A ripe if restrained nose shyly reflects notes of resin, pear, apple and an admirably discreet dollop of wood. There is fine volume and surprisingly good power to the vibrant and mouth coating medium-bodied flavors that possess fine depth and persistence. This is an excellent Chassagne villages and worth considering. *Outstanding Top Value*" -Allen Meadow
