"This wine showed a lot of promise early on but it seems to be drying out a bit on the short and somewhat short finish. The nicely complex and now fully mature nose still reflects some wood influence and while there is good richness and delineation, as I note the finish is no longer well-integrated into the body of the wine. To be sure, this is perfectly good but certainly not one of the vintage's better efforts. Note that another bottle tasted some years prior seemed much more balanced so I don't know if the '93 Charmes has evolved less well than originally envisioned or whether this more recent bottle was suspect." (89?pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, July 2008)
"There is superb complexity to the now fully mature that speaks of spice, earth, animale hints and a mix of both red and dark currants as well as a touch of wood. There is also excellent depth to the impressively rich, delicious and enveloping medium-weight flavors that possess good verve and seriously good length." (93 pts. Allen Meadows, Burghound, Apr. 2016)
