Chamarre "Tradition" 2003 wine review by (PB)
This desert wine by Charmarre from the Jurancon area of France, is utterly fabulous!
Rich yellow hue with amazing spice filled sweetness and fermented mandarin orange and butterscotch on the nose.
Palate--Sweet apricot nectar with pie spices, and great acid structure, with citrus layer and a velvety finish of lingering stone fruit.
I paid $14 for this half bottle and it is truly wonderful. If you see a bottle grab it and relish the beauty of a classic Sauternes worthy type desert wine. Raise a glass for sure!
