Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 92 (43617)

An all but invisible trace of wood toast still allows the elegant if slightly exotic nose of white peach, petrol, acacia blossom and ripe pear aromas to be appreciated. There is fine complexity to the vibrant, lightly stony and delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess good underlying tension; indeed this could reasonably be described as racy on the balanced, complex and firmly structured finish.

Vinous - Score: 93 (43344)

(the crop was normal at 50 hectoliters per hectare; bottled last week): Bright, light yellow. Deep but precise aromas of lemon, orange and hazelnut, with a hint of reduction. Densely packed and seamless, with its serious thickness of texture leavened by a strong impression of acidity. Conveys a crystallized citrus zest character, with firm acidity carrying and extending the fruit through a very graceful finish. Classic Charmes, made almost entirely from vines just below Perrières.
