About

91

" Reticent, pure aromas of lemon and crushed stone, with a hint of vanillin oak; a more exotic mango note emerged with aeration. Rich, dense and young but with a distinct sweetness in the middle palate, in part a function of the wine's vanillin oak component. This is fat and sweet but doesn't quite come alive today. Roulot finds this a bit anonymous, "in the warm style of 2005." (Incidentally, I retasted the 2004 Charmes, and though this wine was almost painful after the 2005, it's a real long-distance runner, with a superb core of fruits and minerals, and a saline, dry, very long aftertaste. My most recent score was a solid 93.)"

91 Allen Meadows - Burghound

"A moderately exotic nose of honeysuckle, mango and apricot trimmed in discreet brioche notes leads to delicious, round and sweet flavors that are generous and nicely harmonious if not as intense and persistent as the best in the range. Still, this is really quite lovely as it has already found its center."
