The wines in Charmail often have a gustatory profile which allows an early drinking thanks to the specificity of the vineyard's vines and the work done on the plants where our main concern has been the ripeness of the grapes and the wine-making technique (cold pre-fermentation maceration).
The wines are generally fruity, with a generous substance and tight tannins. The fact that vintages can be drunk young is not contradictory with their ability to age owing to the richness of the tannins.
"Another fabulous sleeper of the vintage, the 2005 Charmail is a blend of 45% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. There are 10,000 cases of this exquisite, sexy, deep purple-hued effort. It displays plenty of creme de cassis notes intermixed with notions of licorice, charcoal, and cedar, sweet fruit, round, ripe tannins, an endearing opulence, and a long finish. Drink it over the next decade."
The Wine Advocate
"Red-ruby. Very ripe aromas of plum, redcurrant, raspberry and smoked meat. Ripe, plush and sweet; harmonious and pliant. Slightly medicinal red berry and licorice flavors show very good breadth, and the ripely tannic finish displays good length. Much more successful than the 2006.
