($60) Bright, deep red. Exotic aromas of raspberry liqueur, flowers, garrigue and pepper. Dense and thick, with impressive solidity but also a compellingly velvety texture and terrific verve in the mouth. Chewy flavor of raspberry liqueur. Builds and builds on the palate-staining, tactile finish. Has the sheer extract and structure to support extended bottle aging. (Weygandt-Metzler Importing, Unionville, PA)

Deep, subtle and meaty on the nose. And yet there is real energy on the palate – as though some very special engineering has got it airborne, despite its great charge of interesting flavours. This is a lovely, if quite developed wine. No need to hang on to it forever. In fact you could enjoy it a great deal now. Chewy finish augurs well for the future but is not so painful as to detract from the current pleasure.

Drinking beautifully. Quite fruity with soft tannins. Strawberry recurrent and raspberry flavours, light spices lavender and earth.

About This Producer


The father and son team of Gerard and Laurent Charvin define the quintessential boutique domaine. From their 8 hectares of Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyards, a small amount is kept from the best lots for their own bottling. Just over 80% is Grenache, with Mourvedre, Syrah and Vaccarese rounding out the blend. This Chateauneuf-du-Pape is a premium production with a palate of red fruit and berries with elegant white pepper, pink peppercorn and sweet garrigue.
