This petite domaine – just 4ha – has been run almost single-handedly by Denis Bachelet since the early 80s. Extraordinarily old, organically-farmed vines and tiny yields are only partially responsible for the scarcity of these bottles – Bachelet’s wines are so graceful and finessed, so fruit-focused and velvety that they are deservedly among the most sought-after in Gevrey-Chambertin. Finally beginning to wake from its adolescent slumber, the 2006 Vieilles Vignes is aromatic with dark, earthy fruit and a touch of smoked meat. A joy now, but with plenty of life in it.
