Tasting Notes

Dark red; the brightest color of these 2013s. Sexy scents of red and darker berries and dried flowers. Large-scaled, pliant, plush and sweet, with raspberry and cherry fruit complemented by flowers, tobacco and underbrush. This silky, seamless wine expands to fill the olfactories without showing any weightiness. Wonderfully sweet, rich Charmes with outstanding early sex appeal. Finishes with lush tannins and terrific persistence.

Score: 94

(half Charmes and half Mazoyères, from two sources): Deep red. Wild red fruits and oak on the nose. Densely packed and chewy, conveying terrific sappy intensity to its urgent red cherry and raspberry fruit flavors. A compellingly fruity, fresh style of Charmes with a firm tannic spine to support a graceful evolution in bottle.

Score: 92 - 95

The 2013 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru, which is blended with Mazoyères, has a precise, stony, wild hedgerow-scented bouquet that unfolds with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sorbet-like freshness on the entry - such an animated Charmes-Chambertin in the making. There is impressive weight here but it retains superb finesse on the fig-tinged finish. This is a consummate Charmes-Chambertin.

Score: 93 - 95

Here there are no reductive issues as the beautifully fresh and pure nose presents notes of red currant, violet, rose petal, anise and sandalwood. There is fine richness and a lovely sense of underlying tension to the lightly mineral-inflected flavors that possess a silky mouth feel that continues onto the dusty, balanced and strikingly persistent finish. This is a Charmes of finesse and refinement. Sweet spot Outstanding
