Reviews Jancis Robinson "Pure dark fruit. Juicy, almost savoury and still has lovely freshness. Dark, fresh fruit, ripe tannins. And a savoury, spicy finish. (JH)"

Denis Bachelet in his cellar in Gevrey Chambertin

About Domaine Denis Bachelet

This cult status Domaine is not your typical Burgundian wine story. Denis Bachelet is not a 12th-generation winemaker who took over the family’s fully operational domaine. In fact, Denis didn’t even grow up in France - he grew up in Belgium! But nothing could stop him from returning to his grandparents’ small 1.8-hectare vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin when he was 18 years old to start a career in winemaking.

It wasn’t lucrative (or easy) at first. His grandparents had retired a decade prior, and Denis started from scratch without a cellar or equipment. A serendipitous meeting with importer Becky Wasserman introduced him to prominent wine writers like Hugh Johnson, Jancis Robinson, and Clive Coates. Critic reviews catapulted this one-man-show to the top of collector-worthy Burgundy with laud including “nobody makes Charmes-Chambertin like Denis Bachelet” (Neil Martin, WA)

Even his Village level wines have been described in the Wine Advocate as, “the best [v]illage-cru that I have ever tasted” (NM). If you have the opportunity to acquire one of his prized bottlings, you can expect a distinct style that’s built on power, concentrated flavors, and textural richness, thanks to his old vines and judicious use of new oak.
