2012 - Domaine Denis Bachelet Cotes de Nuits-Villages
- Cote de Nuits
- 90-92 NM
The 2012 Côte de Nuits Villages comes from almost a hectare of vines in Brochon on the slopes that naturally produce small berries and ripens late. Always one of my favourite wines from Denis Bachelet, it has beguiling, natural brambly black fruit on the nose with briary and wild hedgerow. The palate is elegant and refined with supple tannins, perfectly judged acidity and finesse that would not look out of place in a premier cru. It just lacks a modicum of persistence - but you will not care about that because you will be too busy looking for another bottle.
