88 - 89/100

This impressive 2010 is one of the most powerful, rich wines I have ever tasted from this over-achieving estate in the northern sector of the Medoc. A blend of 50% Merlot, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot that achieved 14.2% natural alcohol (a record at this property), it boasts an inky/blue/purple color along with a sweet perfume of blueberry liqueur, acacia flowers, graphite, espresso roast and white chocolate. The complex aromatics are followed by a deep, medium to full-bodied wine with outstanding concentration and texture. It should drink well for a decade or more. 2011-2021
88 - 90/100


A property who's star has been rising since Oliver Sèze bought the property in 1982. Oliver developed a process called pre-fermentation cold maceration which produces deeper coloured, fatter wines with soft tannins and this, along with the relatively high proportion of Merlot for the Haut-Médoc (50%), gives wines that are ready to drink within 4 to 6 years of the vintage. It, also, seems to make Charmail a fairly good bet in lesser vintages. Château Charmail is next-door to Sociando-Mallet in the commune of St-Seurin-de-Cadourne, just north of St-Estèphe.
