Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 94

Shows the fresh herb, tobacco and black cherry profile of the vintage, with an undertow of briar and tobacco. The long, sappy finish lets fresh acidity carry the day. This should age nicely, as there's nice dark fruit in reserve as well.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

Charvin's 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out to be one of the vintage's top efforts. Lovely sweet notes of glove leather, roasted meats, spice box, ground pepper, kirsch, and raspberries are present in this deep, full-bodied 2006. More evolved than the 2007, with copious concentration, elegance, and a Burgundy grand cru-like complexity as well as freshness.

($65) Bright red. Captivatingly perfumed scents of fresh red berries, cherry, minerals and flowers, plus an exotic note of incense. Pliant and sweet, with deep raspberry and candied cherry flavors, silky texture and firm mineral cut. Reminds me of serious, decadent Burgundy. Finishes with excellent clarity and red fruit persistence. This is gorgeous. (Weygandt Metzler Importing, Unionville, PA)

Dark purple. Acid, ethanol, and stewed boysenberry/red currant on the nose. The intense acidity blocks all other facets of the palate. This wine needs a lot of time.

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.

Wine Varietal: Rhone Blend

"Rhone blends" are typically red wines comprised of Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvedre in varying proportions. However, the red blends may also include any of the traditional varieties grown in the Rhone Valley such as the 14 allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation. There are also Rhone blend roses which use the same varieties as their red counterparts. White Rhone blends are typically some combination of Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache blanc, and lesser varieties.
