Domaine Aurore Bachelet is located in Santenay — in south of the Côte de Beaune — at the foot of Montange des Trois Croix (Three Crosses Mountain). After graduating business school and traveling abroad, Aurore Bachelet returned to her Burgundian roots and took to viticultural and oenological studies. She spent the next five years training alongside her father Vincent at his eponymous domaine. Today, Aurore crafts wines from Burgundy’s two emblematic varietals: Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With each vintage, she strives to showcase and respect the grapes’ Burgundian identity. Sustainable farming is practiced in the vineyards and all work is conducted manually. Aurore practices minimal intervention in her winemaking, holding to the belief that great wine is made in the vineyard, where careful work is essential throughout the year. Her wines are aged in her 17th century cellar in French oak for 12 to 18 months. They are refined through regular scrupulous tastings and care, assembled in vat, then bottled.

Aurore's Santeney Premier Cru — 100% Pinot Noir — pours a light ruby red that extends all the way to the rim. The wine jumps out of the glass with gorgeous aromas of ripe red berry fruits mixed with notes of dried flowers and a touch of earth. The light-to medium-bodied palate is soft on the attack with loads of energetic fruit flavors (strawberries, raspberries, and a bit of cranberry). Buoyed by bright acidity and mild tannins, these delicious berry flavors carry through to a long, complex finish. Enjoy with pasta tossed with roasted garlic and chanterelle mushrooms, herb-crusted lamb or pan-seared duck breast glazed with a cherry reduction.
