Woop woop! This red Burgundy has just topped Decanter's Panel Tasting of 87 Cote de Beaune reds with an 'Outstanding' rating and 96 points.

Decanter:

It is now 10 years since Antoine and Rachel Olivier made the mobve from Santenay-le-Haut to Vincent Girardin's old premises down the road in Santenay-le-Bas. This has afforded them more space in the cellar and more freedom over when to bottle. The estate has been certified organic since 2011. Les Charmes comes from the southern part of the commune just below the premier cru Clos Rousseau, rich in marl and clay. Some whole clusters are always added to the fermentation tank. 

Panel tasting reviews:

Decanter (Jason Haynes): "Mix of fruits, fairly savoury and clean, nice length, stylish and very well balanced" 96 points

Decanter (Andy Howard MW): "Savoury, leafy notes on the nose and palate. Some slightly sour red cherry and strawberry on the palate, crisp acidity. good purity, some extra tannin structure. Depth and concentration." 96 points

Decanter (Jasper Morris MW): "Medium-deep colour, with whole-bunch fermentation notes making for a complex if as yet inaccessible nose. It all starts to come together in the glass, offering density, vivacity, purity and length. Then it grows and grows into a glorious yet perfectly balanced wine with delicacy, pure fruit and amazing persistence. 13% alc. Drink 2019-2023" 96 points.
