An excellent domaine as can be seen from the following recommendation from Neal Martin:
“Marc Bachelet and his brother Alexandre have set the standard not just in Maranges, but perhaps in the Côte de Beaune, their wines triumphing in many a blind “Burgfest” tasting.
Bachelet-Monnot is on fire at the moment"
18   Maranges
'La Fussieres'
1er Cru
 Bachelot-Monnot Martin - The 2021 Maranges La Fussières 1er Cru Rouge was very complex to pick, the 5.5-hectares with ten different types of ripening depending on vine age and terroirs. It has a very mineral-driven bouquet, beautifully defined with more black fruit than the Clos de la Boutière. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp red fruit, a little leafy in style and sapid with a slightly peppery finish that might fool you into thinking there were stems in the blend (when in fact, they were too green to include this year).

2021 £35.00 NM93

11   Beaune
'Clos des Mouches'
1er Cru

AM - Enough wood and menthol characters are present to mention framing the spiced plum, black raspberry and violet-scented nose. The sleek, delicious and vibrant medium weight flavours possess very good mid-palate density while offering fine length on the moderately austere and serious finish. While this is definitely sufficiently structured to reward up to a decade of cellaring, it's not as tannic as its other Beaune 1er stablemates.

2019 £64.00 AM92
This domaine was a serendipitous discovery in 2016 by Neal Martin of
Here are some of his comments:
Winemaker Thomas Colladot allows the vineyards to articulate their own personalities so that each one offers its own take on the vintage. Clever winemaking matched with excellent terroirs.
    Bearing in mind the cost explosion of quality Burgundy in the last 3-4 years, these wines offer 'relative value' compared to the better known domaine's.
5 75cl Chambolle-Musigny
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

 Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy  - Fresh purple, a little less immediately in one’s face than the Bourgogne. Slightly more delicacy on the palate but with a firm finish. There are 12 barrels of this, plus three which have been made separately from the lieu-dit Gamaires, with 40% whole bunches. This cuvée had a slightly livelier nose, with the flavours spreading further across the palate. At the time of tasting, Thomas had not decided whether to bottle this apart or to blend some or all of it with the main cuvée. A trial blend seemed to build on the advantages of the stems while developing more richness. Three stars without the Gamaires, four stars as a blend. The rating given assumes a blend. Tasted: November 2020

2019 £46.00




4 75cl Morey-Saint-Denis
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy - From three lieux-dits in the middle and north of the village. Notably denser purple colour compared to the Chambolle, and displaying a stricter, firmer nose. Sweet ripe cherries, lovely acidity, medium plus concentration and fine aftertaste. More muscle here and a sublime depth of rich dark cherry fruit. Makes a great contrast to the Chambolle-Musigny. Tasted: November 2018

2017 54.00


10 75cl Morey-Saint-Denis
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy - From three lieux-dits including Clos Solon in the middle and north of the village. Another very ebullient 2018 from Coquard-Loison-Fleurot.
Red fruit, especially raspberry, with saline notes, a little tighter in structure than the Chambolle, this shows excellent promise.
Tasted November 2019

2018 £54.00
3 75cl Gevrey-Chambertin
Coquard Loison-Fleurot

Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy - No whole bunches. No real reason, shrugs Thomas. Deep purple, solid powerful exuberant fruit, some blacker notes here, black cherry with walnut, not so typical but still potentially quite fine.

2019 £50.00


William Kelley -There's no smoke or mirrors at this address, just thoughtful viticulture, vinification with a considerable percentage of whole clusters and careful élevage in barrel with minimal percentages of new oak. The results are striking wines that would embarrass, nay humiliate, plenty of winemakers' grander appellations in a blind tasting—and not just out of the gates, but with bottle age too. Complex, perfumed and elegant, the wines merit a place in any serious Burgundy lover's cellar, and the modest tariff they command proves that great Burgundy remains, for the time being, accessible to all.
    If you believe it is no longer possible to obtain good Burgundy at a fair price, then please try the wines from Didier Fornerol!
14 75cl Cote de Nuits-Villages
Didier Fornerol

RP/William Kelley  - The 2018 Côte de Nuits-Villages delivers notes of raspberries, plums, sweet spices and petals, followed by a medium to full-bodied, concentrated and youthfully chewy palate. This will be very good, but it will demand a little patience. Since Fornerol is in no hurry to sell his wines young, that won't be a problem.

2018 £29.00



A Top Burgundy negociant house, that also owns many excellent vineyards like the one listed below.
They have an excellent price/quality reputation - recommended!
6 75cl Beaune
'Aux Cras'
1er Cru
Louis Jadot

RP/William Kelley - Another highlight this year—and what's new?—is the 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Aux Cras (Domaine Gagey), an elegant, nicely concentrated wine that offers up notes of cherries, red berries, rose petals, orange rind and spicy oak. Medium to full-bodied, with refined tannins and lively acids, it's one of the house's finest Beaune bottlings. 

2019 £47.00
