Domaine Bachey-Legros Maranges Vielles Vignes 2018
Domaine Bachey-Legros is a 6th generation run wine estate whose focus is on creating delicious wines from their 18 hectare of old vines.
A delicious Pinot Noir from one of Burgundy's lesser known but fantastic appellations - Maranges. The vines for this wine date back to 1945 and create a wine that is concentrated with a deep, rich colour and wonderful expressive fruit flavours. The grapes are allowed to ripen to maturity before harvest to obtain the softest possible tannins. Drinking superbly now and can also age for many years to come. Perfect with turkey, game and even beef.
Domaine Bachey-Legros is a very old wine estate, with ancient stones and wines which reflect the terrain. The Bachey family has been working these vineyards and making wine for 6 generations and the house is located on the oldest street of the village of Santenay-le-Haut. Today the estate is run by brothers Samuel and Lenaic alongside their mother, Christiane with a focus on creating excellent wines from their 18 hectares of old vines.
