93 points " This is the finest effort I have ever tasted from this estate. It possesses great intensity, an inky purple color to the rim, a tremendous nose of minerals, white acacia flowers, creme de cassis, and black cherries, with some licorice, vanilla, and smoke in the background. It is truly great stuff, although I would not push its aging capacity beyond 10-12 years. This intense, full-throttle offering is made from a blend of 50% Merlot and equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: now-2014." Best 2004-2014

89 points "This big (by Charmail’s standards), unfined, unfiltered offering possesses 13.5% natural alcohol, remarkably high for Bordeaux. Its dense ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sweet cherry, blackberry, creme de cassis, smoke, and licorice-scented bouquet. Medium to full-bodied and pure, it is best consumed during its first decade of life." Best 2006-2015
