Beguiling - 2013 Bachelet Charmes-Chambertin VV

Posted by Ian McFadden

Bachelet's Charmes-Chambertin is among the rarest treasures of Burgundy.

Bachelet has 0.44ha of nearly 100 year-old vines in Charmes. For us, there's no better example of the Grand Cru than this.

More accurately, Bachelet's Charmes ranks among our favorites in all of Burgundy. It's a masterpiece.

Bachelet's Charmes-Chambertin is a profound bottle, delivering breathtaking complexity, elegance and dazzling purity. The impact and sense of completeness is absolutely stunning. It's multifaceted and explosive with notes of soil, stony minerality, flowers, and layered red fruits.

The 2013 is an especially vibrant edition of Bachelet's Charmes. Antonio Galloni calls it "beguiling" and that's a nice, short summary. The 2013 is a mesmerizing Charmes with a detail, length and aristocratic brilliance that's very noteworthy. We expect this to age amazingly well.

I'm going to wrap this up. Bachelet's Charmes is among the most loved and rarest Red Burgundies. I'll close by stating the obvious: we have a very limited amount of this. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
