A balanced red wine from Haut-Médoc

A Cru bourgeois produced in the Haut-Médoc appellation, Château Charmail is a red wine from a vineyard of 28 hectares. The vines, which are 31 years old on average, are planted on soils made of clayey gravel. The wine is aged in barrel (25% in new barrels) for 12 months.

Château Charmail 2016 boasts a deep, ruby colour with shades of purple. The nose is intense, developing aromas of black fruits, leather and tobacco. The attack on palate combines amplitude and roundness, with a perfectly integrated woodiness. The wine is persistent in the mouth thanks to a fullness and perfectly balanced tannins. To be consumed before 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.
