...one of the high points of the range this year, unwinding to reveal a lovely bouquet of cherries, raspberries, orange rind, grilled squab, peonies, warm spices and espresso roast. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and muscular, with excellent concentration, lively acids and rich structuring tannins. This is the finest Charmes I've tasted at this address, and it comes warmly recommended.
...pure, pretty bouquet of red cherries, crushed strawberry and orange blossom. The vibrant, fresh palate is elegant and airy, without massive structure or grip. The finish shows good delineation...
...nose combines both upper and lower register aromas that include pomegranate, plum, cassis and essence of raspberry where there is a top note of violet. The vibrant, sleek and refined medium weight flavors possess fine mid-palate concentration along with impressive power in terms of what is typical for Charmes, all wrapped in a sappy, long and balanced finale.
Deepish crimson. Pretty ripe on the nose, towards the sweetness of dried red fruits. Matched on the palate... ...offers a deal of pleasure. Balanced and persistent.
