Jean-Claude Bachelet used to sell the majority of his crop to négociants. Nowadays the estate bottles virtually all of its wines and is considered as one of the most conscientious wine producers in Saint-Aubin. His sons Benoit and Jean-Baptiste are now involved and there has been a further step up in quality and consistency. Jean-Claude Bachelet's estate has holdings in Saint-Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny Montrachet and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. The white wines are matured in wooden barriques, of which around 10% are new. Bachelet's wines are exceptionally well balanced and display understated citrus and mineral characteristics. They possess good medium-term ageing potential.

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.
