The Wine Advocate – Robert Parker 88-90/100
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.
