2014 Les Charmes Godard Blanc, Côtes de Francs

SKU #1240537 90 points Vinous

 The just-bottled 2014 Les Charmes-Godard is vibrant and beautifully layered in the glass. Pear, brioche, peach and smoke meld together in a highly expressive, textured Sauvignon/Sémillon blend that captures the combination of richness and lively acidity that make this vintage so attractive for whites. Winemaker David Suire favors larger 500-liter barrels, which help to keep the flavors bright as there is less exchange with oxygen than there is with standard size barriques. Once again, Les Charmes-Godard is one of the vintage's under the radar jewels. The blend is 50% Sémillon, 35% Sauvignon Gris and 15% Sauvignon Blanc. (AG)  (4/2015)

87-90 points Wine Spectator

 Fresh, with lemon curd, white asparagus and white peach flavors. Has some zip, but the more caressing side will likely win out in the end. (JM) (Web Only - 2015)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The Château les Charmes-Godard Blanc 2014 is a blend of 50% Sémillon, 35% Sauvignon Gris and 15% Sauvignon Blanc. It has a more subtle bouquet than the Puygueraud Blanc, more stonier, fumé-like in style. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with pithy, pear-skin notes mixed with citrus peel and shaved ginger. This should be delightful once in bottle. (NM)  (4/2015)

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
