Description

Jean-Claude Bachelet is considered one of the most conscientious wine producers in St Aubin. The wines are exceptionally well balanced, with understated character and good medium-term ageing potential.

Benoît and Jean-Baptiste Bachelet now head up the estate, having taken over from their father Jean-Claude (who died in 2020). Jean-Claude previously sold much of the estate’s crop to négociants, but nowadays they bottle almost all their wines.

Benoît and Jean-Baptiste have now moved to superb new cellars in the hamlet of Gamay, next to St Aubin. In recent years they have been experimenting with biodynamic and organic viticulture in the vineyard and have plans to extend this across their holdings in St Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. 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..

Owing to its enviable position just below Bâtard-Montrachet, Les Aubues punches well above the weight of a village wine. The 2019 is juicy and mouth-filling, with lots of substance on the mid-palate. The finish is crisp, saline and extremely persistent. Drink 2022-2026.
