Qui sommes-nous ?

Domain Bachey-Legros

Samuel et Lénaïc Legros

" Un tel héritage demande beaucoup de respect, et de soins. "

PROFILE

The riches of our domain stem from having stocks of old vines. Small yields, optimum-grape ripeness and concentration, and deeply anchored rootstocks are more than enough to help us produce top quality wines, which exhibit power and elegance in equal measure, and are imbued with a strong regional identity.

The quality and style of our wines is deeply interlinked with our family history. A legacy of care has been handed down through the generations from the 19th Century: François Bachey, Lazare, Joseph, Marcel and Christiane. Each being an only child, they have all somehow successfully managed to pass on the core family values and philosophy intact.

Heritage: 18 hectares of prime vineyards, which have expanded with each subsequent generation, are planted on the best sites in Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Les Maranges, where the finest qualities of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are expressed. This is particularly true of those vines planted between 1935 and 1955, which have been lovingly tended, decade after decade.

Philosophy: This revolves principally around the respect of and for: the vine, nature itself, and the achievements of the previous generations. The essence is to let each rootstock live, produce fruit and then die – in the most natural way possible.

Today, a new chapter is being written in the family history, where the passion of the current generation – Christiane and her two sons, Lénaïc and Samuel – is being allowed the freedom to express itself.

Old Vines!

Our domaine can essentially be summed up in these two words: ‘Old Vines’. Our forebears have passed on to us an impressive legacy, a labour of love that has been toiled over tirelessly and one which we want to carry on today with the same verve and determination. Such heritage demands a great respect and very careful handling.

We like to spend time amongst these vines, walking in the footsteps of our forefathers - and keeping their story alive.

An old vine must be constantly monitored and maintained, nurtured and supported so that it gives up to us all of its pearls of wisdom. Compared to a young and vigorous vine that needs keeping under control, an old vine gracefully produces berries of extraordinary concentration, imbued with a goût du terroir which its roots have extracted from the very depths of the soil. The fruit is itself small – rich in sugars and highly concentrated. With the reds, the thick skins and mature pips give the wines deep colours and silky tannins.

THE WINES

The Whites: 100% Chardonnay. Gently passed through a pneumatic press at low pressure soon after harvesting.  The  alcoholic fermentation takes place at very low temperatures, in barrel. We pay particular attention to the quality of the lees. It is this component that contributes the roundness and complexity of aroma that we are looking for.  We check that there is a sufficient presence of lees when the must is transferred in to barrel.  The wine will then normally spend around 12 to 15 months maturing in cask, depending on the character of the  vintage, with bâtonnage  performed regularly until the onset of the malolactic fermentation.

The Reds:  100% Pinot Noir. Santenay reds are naturally powerful, but our vinification style favours roundness and purity of fruit. Gentle extraction is therefore de rigueur.
