Product Description

Les Charmes is a site just under the Clos Rousseau 1er cru on the south-eastern slopes of the Santenay hill. It tends to produce an earthy, pungent red. The wines from the north of the commune err towards a more delicate style. This supple example, from 45-year-old vines and tiny yields, shows more mineral zeal than the Maranges wines above and also sees about 30 per cent new oak. Very, very handy red Burgundy for the price. The 2013 Les Charmes offers vivid florals, cool forest fruits and orange rind aromas and flavours. Super fine and pure, this is absolutely brilliant Santenay. It’s juicy and clearly defined with tender tannins and a fresh, long, powdery finish. Another bargain from the Bachelet boys. Ultra impressive for both commune and level.

"The 2016 Santenay 1er Cru Charmes comes from terres rouges surrounded by the Clos Rousseau lieu-dit next to Maranges, just 100 meters from Clos de la Boutière, in fact. This includes between 15% and 20% whole bunch fruit, the selection made on the sorting table. It offers juicy raspberry and crushed strawberry scents on the nose, perhaps not quite the detail of Bachelet-Monnot's two Maranges premier crus at the moment. The palate is rounded and juicy, almost approachable at this prenatal stage, with pure raspberry and strawberry pastilles notes infused with orange zest on the finish. Very fine." 91-93 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate #234
