Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Charmes Godard Cotes De Francs Blanc 2015

Rated 92 by James Suckling
A dense and rich white with lots of lanolin, lemon curd and dried apple character. Full body, flavor finish. semillon with muscadelle and sauvignon.
Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2015 Les Charmes-Godard Blanc (part of Nicolas Thienpont's portfolio) is a blend of 50% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon Gris and 25% Sauvignon Blanc picked at 55 hectoliters per hectare. It has a fragrant bouquet with lychee, pineapple and citrus fruit scents, then honeysuckle and jasmine - very complex and alluring. The palate is fresh and crisp with grapefruit and Granny Smith apples on the entry - a keen thread of acidity, very vivacious and tensile, but it does not quite deliver the depth and complexity on the finish to complete the wine. Maybe that will develop in barrel? I hope so, because this is a delicious white Bordeaux that is often overlooked.

Winery Chateau Charmes Godard

Region: Bordeaux

Although most commonly associated with their superb blended red wines, the world-famous region of Bordeaux in France is responsible for a relatively wide array of wines, ranging from the sweet and viscous white wines of Sauternes, to the dry and acidic single variety white wines found all over the region. However, it is the red wines which regularly make the wine world's headlines, and have historically been regarded as the finest on earth. The secret to the region's success is the fact that the warm and humid climate, coupled with mineral rich clay and gravel based soils produces grapes of excellent quality. Wineries in this region have spent hundreds of years mastering the art of blending and oak aging in order to get the best results from each grape, and remain the envy of the world to this day.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
