Great intensity. Hot but balanced with smooth and firm tannins. Expressive ripe red and black fruit. Good energy, and complexity. Nice length. Needs time!

YOUNG and tightly wound for Charvin. I’m digging it, its carrying a load of freshness and bounce from a vintage that has yielded some impressively ripe and weighty wines. Very aromatic and pure, taught and elegant. Silky tannins, very sleek. Crispy red berries, bing cherry, mulberry, star anise, black tea, stones, very tame herbals and a more floral garrigue, lavender in all its glory. Can wait for a revisit down the road.

From the softer side of sears, it’s delicate, but has plenty of depth.

Tasted blind, 3 very different wines but all 3 were excellent and showed their character well. A magnificent and very explosive nose almos, changing fast, complex, deep aromas of soices, black and then white pepper, Provence herbs, black currant, a superb nose. The palate is fairly powerful, a good acidity to go with the strong tannins but mostly amlkng delicious finish, impressive length. 91-92 Dégustation en semi aveugle, 3 rouges très différents. 3 vins magnifiques et de style différents. Magnifique nez excessivement aromatique, très complexe et profond, change énormément, allant du poivre blanc, des herbes, des épices, du cassis, superbe nez. Une bouche puissante mais un peu contenue, une finale surtout excessivement longue avec ces notes d’épices douces et de de poivre. 91-92

Very young so decanted 5 hours before serving. A very expressive nose of dark and red fruits, cassis, cherries and strawberries, kirsch, white pepper, thyme and some floral scents. The palate is forward despite the youth of the wine, medium bodied plus, gorgeous fruit and decent length of the delicious gripping finale. 92-93 Très jeune donc carafé 5 heures avant de le boire, dégusté avec le délicieux et copieux menu hivernal de la Cabane d’à côté, commandé et livré à la maison via la boutique en ligne du Pied de Cochon. Un nez très aromatique, une explosion de fruits, cerises, fraises, kirsch, du poivre blanc, du thym, une touche florale. La bouche se montre avenante, ouverte malgré la jeunesse, belle acidité, ce fruité envoutant dont on ne se lasse pas et une finale delicieuse et de belle longueur, avec juste un peu de poigne sans être trop tannique. 92-93 pts

Drinks well, a slightly dry finish. Didn’t need a lot of breathing time when poured through an aerating topper.

Made pretty good steak wine, but this was a big bottle that probably needed some age. Definitely give the bottle an hour open before drinking.
