Tasting Notes

**Note: from a .33 ha parcel of 40+ year old vines in Charmes proper**
Firm reduction dominates the underlying fruit today. Otherwise there is both excellent volume and punch to the moderately concentrated, focused and precise flavors that conclude in a borderline rustic, austere and slightly lean finish. This ultra-serious effort is an old school Charmes and a wine that is going to require extended keep as it's very, very tightly wound at present.

Score: 91/93Allen Meadows, (69), January 2018

Dark, bright red. A bit of reduction to the aromas of black cherry and herbs. Offers a bit more texture than the premier crus but difficult to taste today owing to its brisk acidity and firm spine of slightly tough tannins. The dominant flavor today is of tart cherry stomp, with accents of coffee and herbs. Finishes with a subtle saline quality but little in the way of sweetness. Just three and a half barrels made, vs. a normal five, as with the Lavaux Saint-Jacques.
