Established over 17 hectares, Domaine Vincent Bachelet produces 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, his wines mainly come from the Côte de Beaune with an enclave on the Côte de Nuits. This family estate extends over the villages of Maranges, Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet, Saint-Aubin, Puligny-Montrachet, Meursault, Pommard and Gevrey-Chambertin.
The vineyard is cultivated in reasoned viticulture. The vines are mainly pruned in simple Guyot for the plots of Chardonnay and Cordon de Royat for the parcels of Pinot Noir. Then comes a rigorous disbudding to regulate the yield to the best. As the plot is aging, the vines are plowed carefully.
Harvesting is done manually by sorting the grapes in the vineyard and in the winery.
The alcoholic fermentation and the macerations of red wines take place in stainless steel tanks during fifteen to thirty days according to the vintage.
White wines are clarified at cold temperature for 48 hours.
The aging in oak barrels lasts ten to fifteen months according to the appellation, the malolactic fermentation takes place during this period. The wines are racked, and put into vats to be glued. A possible filtration, according to the vintage, precedes the bottling.
