Tasting notes

Robert Parker
Tasted: 01/06/2004
Drink: 2004-2011


While it does not possess the power or depth of the 2000, Charmail's 2001, a blend of 55% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 15% Cabernet Franc, is a pleasant, elegant, medium-bodied effort. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Tasted: 01/04/2003
Drink: 2005-2015


The 2001, a blend of 48% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, boasts an impenetrable color in addition to a gorgeous nose of ink, creme de cassis, creosote, and licorice. With super purity, tremendously sweet fruit, medium to full body, ripe tannin, and a long, layered finish, it is a revelation. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015.
