Wine Critic Reviews:

...this is an outstanding village wine in the making in 2016. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a beautiful blend of white peach, apple, citrus blossoms, chalky minerality and just a touch of fresh almond in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, complex and zesty, with a fine core, lovely focus, cut and grip and a long, vibrant and energetic finish. Classy juice. 2018-2035.

John Gilman, A View from the Cellar | 91+ JG
This is buttery, offering flavors of peach, hazelnut and citronella. Shows fine intensity and structure, with balance and a lingering aftertaste of hazelnut, mineral and spice. Drink now through 2024. 65 cases imported.

Wine Spectator | 91 WS
This is a great success, offering up a pretty nose of apple, peach, lemon zest and crème pâtissière. On the palate the wine is medium-full and elegantly glossy, with good concentration, tension and depth, and a nice lick of chalky minerals on the finish. Drinking Window 2018 - 2026

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer Bachelet: Another heavy hitter from Burgundy, Domaine Bachelet-Monnot is renowned for the ability to turn grape varietals like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir into pure liquid magic. Their rise to fame was nothing short of meteoric, with their first batch of Puligny wines already receiving lots of attention, both locally and across the world. With extreme attention to detail and insistence on traditional and precise methods, brothers Marc and Alex Bachelet display all the qualities wine enthusiasts seek in their vintner idols. We can only predict massive success in the future. Depending on which bottle you set your sights on, you can expect to experience a variety of mouth-watering flavor profiles. From white and yellow flowers or syrupy, succulent honey, all the way to a familiar yet compelling fruity undertone, these wines will leave you all but screaming for more. The textures are silky smooth, architectural and intricate, and you can get outright lost in their threads.
