Critical Acclaim

"This wine really develops on the palate, with mineral and blackberry character. Very polished and refined. Full yet elegant. Better than 2009.
Barrel Sample: 92-93 Points "
93 Points

"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. The 2010 has a precociousness that gives it an up-front, sexy appeal, but then clamps down on the palate as the tannins begin to accumulate in the wine's finish. Forget it for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 25."
