2015 Les Charmes Godard Blanc, Côtes de Francs

SKU #1344026 93 points James Suckling

 A white with impressive personality. Green mangoes, lemon rind and limes. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful. Love the dried-fruit and mineral character to the palate. A blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.  (2/2018)

 The 2015 Les Charmes-Godard, Nicolas Thienpont's barrel-aged Sauvignon/Sémillon blend, is once again striking. Lemon peel, lime, white flowers and mint are all finely sculpted in this brisk, beautifully delineated white. I very much like the energy here, yet there is also plenty of texture to back things up. Les Charmes-Godard is a blend of equal parts Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon fermented and aged in 500-liter barrels. (AG)  (4/2016)

White Bordeaux can be made in a variety of styles, but often the best, and most long-lived styles are made with a blend of Semillion, and see some oak influence, as is the case here. The oak influence, however, is minimal, since the barrels used are large format. The wine retains plenty of fresh acidity and grassy/citrus notes from the Sauvignon Blanc, but has an added richness of texture and fruit presence due to the Semillon, and the sur lie aging. This is a serious and well-crafted little wine that, although pleasant now, will undoubtedly age phenomenally well.

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.
