Red wine. Southern Rhône, France. 85% Grenache, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Vaccarèse, 5% Syrah.
"Dark glistening red. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and dark berries, baking spices, garrigue and candied flowers, and a smoky mineral flourish appears as the wine opens up. Sappy, sweet and penetrating on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille flavors joined by hints of allspice and bitter chocolate. Smooth and seamless in texture, showing superb finishing clarity, gently gripping tannins and strong, spicy persistence. This is a somewhat more brawny wine than usual for Laurent Charvin, but it still retains the domaine's trademark balance and energy." — 94-96 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous (December 2019)
Since 2016, Laurent Charvin has been producing a deliciously different Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc primarily from 50 year-old vines of Clairette Rose, with Bourboulenc from 70 year-old vines in the vineyards of Maucoil and Cabrieres on galet stone and sandy clay soils. (Whole-cluster pressing, fermentation in vat, malo done, aged in steel tank for 9 months, only 90 cases made.) From drinkrhone: "the robe has a yellow with a hint of peach in its hue. This has a reticent but stylish, serene nose, honeysuckle flowers that appeal, cooked lemon, trim freshness present. The palate has an interesting tone, nice supple gras richness, elegant and fleshy, gives real comfortable drinking, achieves discreet late grip. There is a wee sense of oil in the texture - a pleasing vinosity - and a salt note on the close." Drink until 2035
