A fine combination of stylish floral chardonnay with weighty fruit on the palate. Real lift defines the excellent long finish. Very impressive. Drink 2009-2012.

Caroline Gagnard, who has been running her father’s domaine since 1989, is happier with the quality than the quantity in 2012. There will be no Hautes Côtes de Beaune for us this year and very little village Chassagne, but Caroline has been kind enough to look after us as much as possible in our favourite Premier Cru vineyards. Her red wines are also very attractive this year. She tends to make the reds for relatively early drinking, but Caroline’s whites have an excellent track record for ageing very well. These 2012s are chock full of energy, and reflect their different vineyard sites very clearly.

Having moved into their smart new cellar, enabling them to optimise the winemaking side, the Bachelet boys, Benoît and Jean- Baptiste, are evolving their viticultural techniques as well. The vineyards are all ploughed and are managed according to lutte raisonnée, but there are biodynamic experiments in Les Charmois, Les Blanchots Dessus and their Grand Cru. This domaine, which receives regular plaudits in France, deserves to be better known internationally. There are short rations this year, as for everybody: Overall their yields in 2012 are 25 hl/ha in white and 19 h/ha for the Pinot Noir vineyards.
