Note de dégustation

“The 2004 Chauvin may turn out to be outstanding. Its dark ruby/purple hue is accompanied by beautiful aromas and flavors of black raspberries, blueberries, cassis, lead pencil shavings, spice, licorice, tar, and roasted herbs. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, rich, and concentrated, this impressive sleeper of the vintage will benefit from 1-2 years of bottle age, and should keep for 10-15 years.”

Robert Parker/Wine Advocate:
89+/100

“Perky nose, ripe red fruits, cherries. Reasonably fresh, silky, finely concentrated, vigourous rather than elegant, good length. Drink 2010-15.”
