A passion for wine was what led Bertrand Bachelet to take over the family estate from his father, Jean-Louis, in 2011. He is the fourth generation in the line of Burgundy winegrowers. Bertrand currently runs the 13 hectares that stretch from Maranges to Pommard in the Côte de Beaune. The estate is based in Dezize-les-Maranges, one of three villages of the Maranges appellation. This appellation accounts for the greatest portion of the estate's production.
Bertrand is passionate about continuing the family tradition of producing high-quality wines, and employs new techniques that come from modern viticulture and oenology. His aim is to draw the best out of each terroir in order to produce a range of rich and diverse wines. Strong emphasis is placed on the meticulous work in the vineyard that is required to grow healthy grapes which are crucial when producing Grands Vins. Great importance is given to working the soil, so that the uniqueness of each terroir can be showcased.
From the pruning stage right up to the harvest, all work is done manually. Vinification is still carried out in a traditional manner with little intervention, to highlight the uniqueness and complexity of each of their terroirs.
