Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2000

$79

The glories at this estate are unquestionably their Chateauneuf du Papes...A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a sweet nose of creme de cassis, kirsch liqueur, licorice, pepper, and underbrush. Voluptuously-textured and exceptionally long (the finish lasts 45+ seconds), with silky tannin, low acidity, and full body... it offers a gorgeous, seductive mouthful of old vine Chateauneuf du Pape...Readers who believe Chateauneuf du Pape can not be a wine of finesse and elegance should taste Charvin!

Tawny color. Great herbal nose. Notes of red fruit, herbs de Provence, kirsch, some brown spice and a little sour cherry. Nicely balanced in the mouth. In a great drinking window, I don’t thing this gets any better with more age.

In a great spot, Burgundy style CDP that only got better as the night progressed. Paired great with braised lamb shoulder.

The dark bright ruby '00 Domaine Charvin Châteauneuf-du-Pape has not skipped a beat since my last bottle over two years ago. This fully mature Red Rhone still shows clean aromas of ripe cherry, tobacco, cracked pepper and briery herbs. The fully-integrated tannins make the lush palate of red fruit and licorice flavors soft and creamy. This is an elegant expression of a classic CdP.
