A delicate Haut-Médoc cru with a rich aromatic palette

The property

Located on the banks of the Gironde, on the Left Bank of Bordeaux, Château Charmail has established itself as one of the finest references among the Crus Bourgeois Exceptionnel of Haut-Médoc.

The vineyard

Château Charmail reigns over an exceptional vineyard planted in clay-gravelly soils with 28.5 hectares of vines that extend until the river.

Vinification and ageing

Following the harvest, the grapes were selected by densimetry. About 10 days of cold pre-fermentation maceration (5 °C), extraction at 18 degrees maximum. Ageing lasted about 12 months in barrels of 500 litres (55% new oak) and in concrete eggs of 17 hectolitres.

The blend

The Château Charmail 2020 was made from a blend of Merlot (36%), Cabernet Sauvignon (32%), Cabernet Franc (16%) and Petit Verdot (16%).

The tasting

Colour

Intense and beautifully deep, the wine displays a Burmese ruby ​​colour, adorned with bluish nuances.

Nose

The nose combines notes of black fruits, fresh blackberries and blueberries with floral fragrances (violet) and liquorice.

Palate

The attack seduces with its softness and density. The palate is refreshing, marked by spicy notes that reveal a creamy and delicate touch. Persistent and generous, the finish presents fine tannins.

Cellaring

The Château Charmail 2020 can be aged in the cellar between 2023 and 2045, allowing it to express its full aromatic palette.
