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.
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".
