A balanced red wine from Haut-Medoc

cru bourgeois produced in the Haut-MedocChateau Charmail is a red wine grown on a vineyard of 28 hectares. On average, the wines are 31 years old and planted on soil with clay and gravel. The wine is aged in barrels (25% are new) for 12 months.

Chateau Charmail 2016 reveals a deep ruby color, with purple tears. The aromas that develop are intense: black fruitsleather and tobacco. The attack in the mouth is ample and round, with hints of wood that are perfectly integrated. A wine that is persistent in the mouth with well-balanced tannins. To be consumed from now until 2027.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 Charmail is blended of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 10% Petit Verdot aged for 12 months in roughly one-third each new, one-year-old and two-year-old French oak barrels. Deep garnet-purple in color, it delivers intense scents of crème de cassis, cedar chest and pencil lead with touches of yeast extract and menthol. Medium to full-bodied with a firm frame of chewy tannins and plenty of mint-laced fruit, it finishes just a little woody at this youthful stage but should dial that in beautifully with another year or two in bottle.
