With Grand Crus now in the stable to compete alongside, we wondered aloud whether the Charlemagne would hold its own. We needn¿t have worried- the competition has only encouraged the team to raise the game here and the reduction of the percentage of new oak and the lighter toast has allowed this great cuvée to express itself fully. The nose is mineral, briny and engaging and the palate shows creamy textures, movement and tension and considerable drive to a powerful finish. The gauntlet is thrown down to the Bâtard. Drink from 2014.
