Jean-Claude Bachelet used to sell the majority of his crop to négociants, but nowadays the estate bottles virtually all of its wines and is considered one of the most conscientious wine producers in St Aubin. After moving to superb new cellars in the hamlet of Gamay, next to St Aubin, Benoît and Jean-Baptiste Bachelet have taken over from their father Jean-Claude (who died in 2019). The basic principle of a long, slow barrel-ageing for almost two years remains in force, while the state-of-the-art winery has improved consistency. In the vineyard, the brothers have been experimenting with biodynamic viticulture and have plans to extend this across their holdings in St Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. The Bachelet wines are exceptionally well balanced, with understated character and good medium-term ageing potential.
