Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "Soaring from the glass with aromas of cherries and raspberries mingled with sweet spices, licorice, rose petals and orange rind, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, with terrific concentration, lively acids and a long, perfumed finish. (WK)" 91-93 points Vinous "It has a clean, precise bouquet of black cherries, iodine, violet and light sous-bois aromas that soar from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a granular texture, impressive weight and disarming elegance and harmony on the finish. (NM)"

About Domaine Denis Bachelet
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.
