The new-look Charles is blended by new winemaker Thierry Roset. It maintains the complex, rich, mature house style thanks to 40 per cent reserve wine. Deep-coloured, smelling of toasted bread, stone fruit and citrus, it's soft and dry to finish, with great texture and balance. Best within five years. 12 per cent alcohol.
Food: Mushroom vol-au-vents
