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, the 2020 is great, with plenty of fruit to balance the structure and freshness. Another absolute bargain.
