Domaine Bertrand Bachelet
France - Burgundy - Chassagne-Montrachet

The Chassagne-Montrachet appellation is originally better known for its white wines, but also produces high quality red wines. The complexity of the terroir allows both varieties to thrive side by side.

The wine is produced from vineyards located in the villages of Les Lombardes and Les Benoites that benefit from iron rich clay soils. A ruby garnet color, and an expressive nose of spices and red fruits that echo on the palate.

Ageing in wood for around twelve months (about 20% new barrels), followed by a period of 8 months in stainless steel vats before bottling.

Pairs well with a nice cut of red meat.
