MEURSAULT ‘LES GRANDS CHARRONS’, Bachey Legros 2011

£32.50

Product Description

The vineyard site is on some east facing clay slopes just north of the strip of 1er Crus. Their first vintage picked up 2 stars in the Guide Hachette. The 2011 was beautifully creamy, with a hint of vanilla and butter behind really fresh, spiced tropical fruits. Really nice bit of kit.

The rich character of our Domain lies in its “vieilles vignes”(old vines).  These low yielding vines, with deeply-anchored roots and concentrated grapes, provide the foundation which, with our loving care and hard work, produces top quality wines. Power is matched with elegance and the voice of their terroir is loud and clear. Balance is the key.

The style and quality of our wines are intimately linked with the history of our family, a history spanning six generations since the 19th century: Francois Bachey, Lazare, Joseph, Marcel and Christiane, each one of them an only child. These successive generations of the family have passed on, in its entirety, a unique heritage and philosophy.

The heritage: a vineyard of 18 hectares, expanded by each generation, comprising the best plots in Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Maranges, where all the finesse of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are expressed. And, above all, vines planted for the most part between 1935 and 1955 and nurtured with care, year after year.
