“The 2014 Côtes de Nuits Villages has a controlled blackberry and wild strawberry-scented bouquet, a little tighter than the Bourgogne Rouge at the moment with just a faint hint of blueberry developing with time. The palate is fleshy on the entry with sappy black fruit, supple in the mouth with a tang of salinity towards the flattering finish. This is a very well crafted Côte de Nuits.”
93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, January 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"​Denis Bachelet has been producing wine since 1983 from his pint sized vine holdings (less than four hectares in total), based out of Gevrey-Chambertin. Typically from older vines (30 years old through to 100-or-so), winemaking is ultra simple – natural ferment, never more than half the wine sees new oak, no filtering. Organic principles are applied in vineyard. As one of the smallest domain domaines in Burgundy, he has a feverish cult following; these are very rare wines that rarely see light of day in public. Expressive, fresh-feeling, unadorned in style.

Glorious drinking. It shows a touch of wildness throughout – savoury, earthy, decaying flower elements in dark berries and cherries. The palate is hewn from rough silk, spreads through the mouth, stains it lightly with fruit and garrigue/herb characters. Just a smudge of tannin helps the wine find shape, but it’s mostly about the expressive, vibrant, pure-feeling wash of fruit. Beguiling. I want more."
