This three year-old disgorgement was not our best bottle of Charlie 1985 as on other occasions it has reached as high as 96 points. This bottle showed its age with slight oxidation and drying fruit. One could still see it has once been a great wine. Very deep golden colour with slow, small-sized bubbles. Grilled almonds, honey, dried fruits and vanilla on the complex nose. The light mushroomy notes deduct from the appeal. Rich and vinous on the palate with the finish slightly drying out.
