Note de dégustation

"The 2021 Chauvin has a well-defined bouquet of blackberry, raspberry, sous-bois and tobacco scents, though it needs time to coalesce in the glass. Tha palate is medium-bodied with slightly rigid tannins, quite masculine, and a little austere in style, but there is adequate freshness on the finish. Give this 4-5 years in bottle."

Neal Martin (Vinous) : 90 - 92


"Dark chocolate touches on the nose are so appealing with violets and blackcurrants. Juicy and lively at first with the liquorice and clove elements following just closing the palate slightly into a more focused and linear style rather than being overly expansive. Tannins are fine and soft and this has a lovely graceful appeal despite the cool austere touches giving it a closed feel right now. Michel Rolland consultancy."
