“This is a terrific wine” - Robert Parker. Château Charmail is a hidden gem in the Cru Bourgeois world, and we have been lucky to get our hands on this 2008, an “old” vintage perfect to drink now. Very consistent over the years, it has a growing and well-deserved reputation. Medium to full-bodied, it shows fine aromas of small berries and spices, ending on a light wooden touch. Tannins are present but well-balanced.

|What experts say|
88/100 "Good Cabernet-Merlot blend showing both flesh and charm. A very attractive wine."
15.5/20 "Quite rich and sweet scented. Pretty, smooth, easy - though possibly not the most authentic or artisanal."
88/100 "This dark ruby/plum/purple-tinged sleeper of the vintage exhibits plenty of sweet black currant fruit intertwined with hints of incense and damp earth. Medium-bodied with plenty of juicy, savory fruit, soft tannin and decent acidity, it will drink well for 5-7 years."
