(from Charmes proper). An airy and attractively layered nose offers up a variety of red berry aromas that are liberally laced with touches of spice, earth and oak. The rich, round and suave medium-bodied flavors possess a caressing, even opulent mouth feel though the moderately firm finish is not nearly as complex, at least not at present. Still, this is not without merit and 12 to 15 years should see it at its best. (90-93)/2028+
