Tasting Notes

Les Charmes Dessus is a site just under the Clos Rousseau 1er Cru on the south-eastern slopes of Santenay. While it’s reasonably close to Clos de la Boutière the terroir is markedly different. Here the red clay and rocky, limestone soils result in aromatic, racy reds of great finesse and freshness. To put it another way, this vineyard is often referred to as a ‘white terroir’ and Marc Bachelet tells us this is always the site that delivers the best acidity in the reds, regardless of the year. Fermented with roughly 25% whole bunches, it’s super-classy and another absolute bargain. - Importer Note

Importer Note:

'Everyone is on the lookout for Burgundy's next white-wine star, , and brothers Marc and Alexandre Bachelet, who created this property in 2005 from their father's and uncle's land, are quietly making a solid claim. Their low-key winery is in Dezizelès-Maranges, at the southern tip of the Côte de Beaune, but their vineyards represent a great cross-section of Puligny, Chassagne and Meursault. Theirs is winemaking in the current, structure-minded style; lots of air for the juice, fermenting in larger barrels, finishing in steel. The wines have both character and precision, which is evident even in their village-level Puligny. " Jon Bonné,punchdrink.com

'Many of you will already be aware how much respect I have for Marc and Alec Bachelet who are doing wonderful things down in Dezize-lès-Maranges... What can I say? What more needs to be said? These guys are just making stupendous white Burgundy wines that rank alongside the best you can find, If you have not discovered the Bachelet brothers yet, it's time to do so.
