Arden and Margaux met Marc and Alexandre at a trade tasting in New York City. The brothers were pouring their lineup of newly bottled 2017 and that day was the first time the wine was being poured and tasted in the US. Their wines were hands down the standout star of the trip and lucky for us, and now you, we were able to get first dibs on an allocation. From their domaine in Dezizes-les-Maranges, brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, oversee an enviable catalogue of top Côte de Beaune vineyards: St. Aubin En Remilly, the top sites in Maranges, Puligny 1er Cru Folatières, Puligny 1er Cru Referts, Batard Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet, and some of the best parcels in Santenay. Since their first vintage in 2005, they have refined their approach to farming and winemaking to the point where they are now firmly established as two of Burgundy’s finest talents.
“Alexandre and Marc Bachelet have been on fire over recent vintages…My budget would be invested in the outstanding Maranges premier crus such as Fussière and Clos de la Boutière that I strongly suspect will represent some of the best values over the entire of the Côte d’Or…and if I were a millionaire, I would still buy them. ”–Neil Martin, Vinous
