2016 Domaine Bachelet-Monnot Meursault Clos du Cromin

Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml


Tasting Notes:

The 2016 Meursault Clos du Cromin is usually a blend of young vines planted in 1998 with 90-year-old vines, though this year the latter was completely frosted. Nevertheless, it has a satisfying bouquet of dried honey, almond and hazelnut, gaining intensity all the time in the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with a fine bead of acidity, though it is not a complex or “ambitious” Meursault. In that sense, it knows its place and retains freshness and typicity without striving for complexity or razor-sharp delineation. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

description Producer information Professional reviews

Domaine Bachelet-Monnot in Dézize (Cote de Beaune) was recently created by Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, grandchildren of Bernard Bachelet. They own 10ha of vine in all, covering Maranges, with 1er cru wine La Fussière in both colours and the semi-monopoly of Clos de la Boutière, Santenay and Puligny-Montrachet, including 1ers crus Referts and Folatières along with grands crus Bienvenues-Bâtard and Bâtard-Montrachet. The whites wines are exceptionally fine.
