  • Served blind. This was really good. Hard to distinguish from the Mouchere except maybe with a little extra richness and complexity. A bit lean compared to the PYCM but this developed nicely with air.

  • PNP. I think this is drinking perfectly now. Buttery, hazelnut flavors with lemon, peach, and apple flavors. Seamless and extremely well balanced. Fruit has softened, but all the flavors are now well integrated. I have been drinking these over the past 5 years and not one has suffered from preoxidation.

  • nose-floral, butter and honey

    Good rich full bodied, slightly less butter and more minerality as you taste, definite citrus providing some good acidity, but can't put my tongue on the other fruit...peach?

    Drink 'em if you got 'em

  • lovely crisp wine with hazelnut, citrus and honey notes on the nose; great acidity in the mouth with a rich mid palette and a long finish; aging beautifully but ready to drink

  • Stunningly beautiful. Full, rich and creamy, yet light to the point of being ethereal and sporting a crisp citrus line of acidity. The nose is deep and complex with primary floral notes, honey, apricots and cream and secondary notes of vanilla and lemon zest. The palate is still bright and fresh despite the ten years, with the same floral and honeyed notes but also showing a surprising savory note reminiscent of toasted cinnamon, nuts, and even a slight truffly note. All this along a solid beam of crisp, creamy, bitter lemon-rind acidity. Simply stunning. This has a beautiful dichotomy between rich and crisp and full and light. This is only my second wine from this particular vineyard, but I am beginning to see why the call it "Les Charmes".
