Description

93 Points, James Suckling; 93 Points, DecanterJames Suckling: Wow. This is unknown with walnut, dark chocolate and dark fruit. Full body, Juicy and sexy. Velvety. Elegant nose with blackberries and licorice. Opens up with Earl Grey, cedar and steely mineral character. Full and intense on the palate with polished dark fruit and refined tannins. Wonderful texture and long finish with a tasty licorice note.Decanter: “Deep rich fruit aromatics on the nose, and a lovely plum color that is holding firm, barely bricking around the edges. This proves once again that this is just a stellar vintage in Bordeaux, delivering on both banks. It’s high in alcohol and maybe a bit of a gamble to decide when to drink to make the most of the fruit before the alcohol flattens things out on the finish. But, there is definitely depth and width here with dark bitter chocolate notes and firm tannins – plenty to recommend.”Robert Parker, Jr.’s Wine Advocate: “Chauvin produces a stylish wine, always exhibiting plenty of black cherry fruit intermixed with garrigue notes as well as hints of spice box and Christmas fruitcake in a medium to full-bodied, elegant yet savory and expansively textured style.”Barrel aging : 16 month50% new oak – 50% barreis of one year
