Château Chauvin St. Émilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

$69

Saint-Emilion Grand Cru wines are produced under slightly tighter production restrictions than regular Saint-Emilion wines. As with other Grand Cru appellations, the intention behind this is to improve the quality, and to distinguish the area's finer wines from the more everyday wines. The top-tier wines from Saint-Emilion, then, are not marked out by their Grand Cru status, but by their appearance in the Saint-Emilion Wine Classification. This works in much the same as the classifications of the Medoc, Graves and Sauternes, but with one significant difference: it is periodically reviewed to keep it up-to-date and relevant. It was first drawn up in 1955, and (after a controversial review in 2006) was most recently updated in 2012.

Drinking really well right now, this is in such a great spot!! Mostly mature notes combined with some remaining youthful fruit and energy. Definitely worth looking at if you are looking for a traditional Bordeaux with some age. Don't let the Cheval Blanc look-alike label fool you though!

Luscious fruit- filled flavor of ripe plums and cherries, soft tannins but lots of future ahead.

Quite powerful and masculine with its inky, plummy, leathery mouthfeel. Still some tannines to shed, so some room for improvement. Already approachable with air, though. Very good!

Yep, the label looks like Cheval Blanc & this isn't that. It is a traditional medium to full bodied St Emilion which shows a fantastic balance of earthy/tobacco/cedar & black/red currants across the nose and palate. Tannins are beginning to resolve & this is in an entirely satisfying drinking window. Powerful, yet wonderfully refined.
