TN: 2000 Château Charmail (France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Haut-Médoc)

  • 2000 Château Charmail - France, Bordeaux, Médoc, Haut-Médoc (11/23/2009)
    My second and last bottle. Not really any better than the previous bottle. Nose is pretty: toasty, some cedar, and coffee, hints of dark fruit. Unfortunately, that was the highlight. Palate is dusty and oaky, has some green hints, and really goes nowhere. Dusty. Hollow in the middle and just falls off from there. Nothing really wrong, but nothing really right either. B+ for the nose, C for the rest. Yay!

Dennis, I bought some of those because of the high QPR, and was very dissapointed with the wine. Haven’t touched the others for years. Seems like no need to go back to them.

Yeah, I haven’t had a good one. they were sub $20 once, so no biggie. But nothing to write home about either.
I have a couple glasses left for tonight.

I had a few bottles of this wine a couple or so years ago and really enjoyed it. Seemed like a great value at the time.

I recently saw an 05 on the shelf for somewhere around $30. Go or no go on that?
